It finally happened. I've had an unqualified disaster. This week turned out SO badly I'm just going to tell you what NOT to do.
Don't try to make Wasabi Edemame from scratch. No matter how much you love wasabi peas.
I steamed the fresh edemame in the pods and then shelled it. I poked a tiny hole in each and every little bean to allow the moisture to escape while I dry roasted them in the oven.
I set the oven on 300 and roasted FOREVER - I though.
But, they never dried out. They were mushy inside. I tried coating them with the wasabi and roasting them some more. Failure.
Next time, I'm going to buy the roasted beans, toss them in wasabi, and be done with it.
Here's what they looked like. You don't want to know what they tasted like.
