This recipe is usually a very nice starter for a party. But cooking in someone else’s kitchen with unfamiliar stores (quite a drive away) made for less than stellar results. Even so, the meal with my brother and sister-in-law, was beautiful. A little hunger may whet the appetite, but it’s the warmth of companionship which makes the meal special.
Love this type of dip, Tess… edamame has such great color, I’ve been using it quite a bit in cooking these days
I’ve been sort of out of the web world, but have been reading your blog. Thanks for the comment, as busy as you must be! Edemame are so pretty, quick to add color and a little of the exotic without much fuss. To tell the truth, I’ve been pretty much cooking quick to make meals lately. Tasty, but without much mucking about.
You are too sweet! I always read your blog, even if you take a break for a while, it doesn’t matter – life goes through changes, priorities move around, blogging is not always at the top. But when you come up with a new post, I can hardly wait to read it!
All the changes in your life, and stresses, oh my. I admire your stamina and energy to keep on blogging. Perhaps a bit intimidating? Ah… Your posts are like traditional mail from a friend—I think you are the oldest (longest) person I’ve met online. The good old days! <3
Indeed… it’s been many, many years…. I considered shutting down the blog for a while, but then realized that it’s a good way for me to relax and do something “different”
so I keep going, at a slower pace, but going ;-)
Hmmm lovely :)
Can you get edamame beans in Amsterdam? But with all the lovely cheeses and yogurts and wine, maybe they are not so exciting. LOL This recipe really is lovely. But perhaps not very exotic for us here…
Yes, the bauty of Amsterdam is that almost anything is for sale here. For example the best japanese ingredients: http://dlcsmanagement.wordpress.com/2012/01/26/japanese-in-amsterdam/
Eating green things seems to equate to happiness. How different from childhood!
I second Sally. Eagerly await time in your kitchen with you but everything has its season.
What a delicious looking dip! And I love the sense of movement and speed in the photo as you whisk it. Do you usually use the food processor at home?
For this recipe I always use a food processor, a mini processor. Which I found in my sil’s pantry. But my mistake about using too many beans made the recipe less than its usual greatness. The pictures are Mr. Tess whipping and chopping by hand in hope of making the dish palatable. It was OK but dumb Tess sometimes…
So I never really got a “food perfect” picture. The action shots are real and sometimes what I cook is not perfect. One of my pet peeves is having dish towels hanging on the oven handle. But it made an interesting picture with the white shape there and the paper towel on the counter. Interesting rather than perfect?
Oh and your flower shots are extraordinary!
Googling for this post, I found out that those flowers are edible! I guess that I have seen hibiscus teas for sale. But never Rose of Sharon. Haven’t had a chance to taste one (or more) yet. Wonder if one could just use them as a garnish without getting poisoned?
Tess, me again! Just made the dip this morning, and used it to fill pieces of cucumber, hollowed out. We have a potluck in the department today, I am sure it will be a hit! It is DELICIOUS! I have an edamame dip on my blog, but yours is much much better. I will be blogging on it for sure in the next couple of weeks, and will let you know once the blog post is up (with all credit to you, of course!)
Yes, it is really good! Please also include a reference to Hiroko Shimbo and the book I began with: it is her recipe!

Don’t worry, I included a link to the book – before I publish the post I can send you a version and if you want me to change anything, I can change before publishing…. I still have your email, so that’s going to be easy.
I will have it out for you before Monday, ok?
That’s great. Though I’m sure whatever you write will be wonderful… I am looking forward to hearing how your department party went!
