Garlic Edamame and Kinpira Gobo

Garlic Edamame and Kinpira Gobo
Healthy Appetizers

I’ve been hearing that we post a lot of meat on our blog and we had an anonymous request to post more vegetable dishes, so here it is. Meat is more fun, tastes wayyy better, and you get full cheaper… but it doesn’t hurt to be healthier once in a while 🙂

Butter Garlic and Soy-Sauce Edamame with Sea Salt
Sauce: Soy sauce, roasted garlic, butter, brown sugar, sesame oil, red chili flakes
Boil edamame, strain water, smother in sauce, top with sesame seed, chili flakes and hawaiian sea salt.
Sweet, Spicy, Salty, and Buttery… OK not really healthy, but awesome with beer.

Kinpira Gobo
Evidently, Gobo is Japanese for Burdock root… whatever Burdock is…
Sauce: Soy sauce, Sesame Oil, Sugar
Cut the Gobo, Carrot, and Bacon in thin pieces like the photo below. Stir fry the bacon followed by the Gobo and Carrot. Once it starts to get soft, pour some Sake (Alcohol). When its right about ready, pour the sauce mentioned above. Top with sesame seeds and red chili flakes.
(Traditionally, this dish does not have bacon… my own twist that ups the original lol)

Kinpira Gobo with a bottle of cold Iichiko (my favs Oolong Tea + Iichiko = Oolong-hai.. I could literally drink that all night long)

Gettin hungry, Gd nite!
