Edamame Fever

Edamame is now a trendy health food item in the USA. Apparently this is a young soybean and is called 毛豆; pinyin: máodòu in Chinese.

The best edamame product I have found is edamame hummus at Trader Joe's. The stuff tastes great and reminds me of guacamole.

Maybe the J-hole or Karl can give it a try to make his own in Taiwan.

Here is a recipe.

DISCLAIMER FOR J-HOLE: YES, I REALIZE IT IS NOT GUACAMOLE, AND NOTHING CAN REPLACE GUACAMOLE. But maybe if you don't have any avocados or want to try something different it would work.

Might as well give it a shot. I was in Costco yesterday and they were out of avocados. And tomatoes. And spinach.
