Reviewed sauteed edamame

1 day ago on FoodNetwork.com

Dang! I was not prepared to like this since I have never made edamame before but it was pretty tasty. Taking previous reviews under consideration suggesting it needed more flavor I added to the onion about 1/4 cup of chopped red bell pepper and 1/2 jalape�o pepper (seeded and membranes removed) and saut�ed them with the onions and garlic with only...

This was delicious, easy, who cares if she put the caramel sauce in the refrigerator while it was warm. This area is for rating recipes not food preparation techniques. Who cares!

Made this last night for the second time. It is fantastic. I followed the recipe pretty closely, I used a mixture of sharp cheddar, gruyere, smoked Gouda, and parmesan cheeses. Also added about 7 dashes of hot sauce for a little heat. Used milk instead of half and half and it is plenty rich enough absolutely no reason to use the half and half....

For a cheap, fast, healthy meal this is 5 stars. I followed the recipes exactly but did not add the sauce at the end. Just topped the fish with homemade pico and shredded lettuce. I might try a little nicer white fish next time, but it was very good and a hit with the family.

Really good recipe. Make sure you do not add more than 1/2 chicken stock. First time I made them I put too much stock. This time I measured it out and it was perfect. Just follow the recipe as well. It really doesn't need any alterations. Great way to fix green beans and health too! You don't need the whole 2 TB. grease if you are counting c...

Loved this chowder! I used half and half instead of milk to make it even more decadent (and fattening!) Will probably cut back a little on the 2 cups next time. The 2 of us ate every bite to this. I could not keep from going back into the kitchen and getting another bite. It is so comforting! Oh and that was using frozen corn instead of fresh....

I thought this was very good considering it is a lower calorie, healthy meal. I halved the recipe and it was still a lot. I read the reviews about it being bland and knew adding all that water was the cause of that. I used the whole quart of stock and no water or additional liquid. Seasoned it up with fresh thyme, some dried oregano, bay leaf,...

This is awesome. I could eat this in place of French fries! I did decrease the oil, salt and pepper. I find almost ALL of Ina's recipes are too heavy on the salt, but they are still delicious as long as I cut back on the seasoning. I think her taste buds are a little fried! LOL Will be making this again for sure.

Perfect Monday night meal. Light, healthy, and delicious. Perfect as is but a little fresh dill on the fish and basil in the salad just improves it. I found the yogurt sauce a little heavy on the lemon so grated some of the cucumber into it like a tzatiki sauce. This meal is a keeper. "
