E is for Endamame and Ricotta Pasta

Posted by Picasa

Our farewell to the Edamame Bean came from a suggestion from a blog comment left by Wellunderstood. We mixed the cooked edamame beans with penne pasta, grated parmesan and ricotta cheese, a handful of lardons of bacon and I added a generous handful of chopped basil leaves. Speed of consumption is a key indicator in our house and this meal was eaten by Alexandra and Freddie with indecent haste. Freddie said "These beans are as good as meat. And they're green!" This has to be the perfect food for a veg-phobic. Both children scored the meal a nine out of ten. We move on....and boy have we found a good one.


  1. I love vegetables, but somehow the idea of endamame makes me feel a little green ... but if Freddie likes it as much as meat, I'll have to try it ...


  2. great big veg challenge6:31 AM

    Believe me, if Freddie likes it, it is not very green in flavour...or indeed texture - it is very nutty to taste, quite filling.

  3. so glad you enjoyed it as much as we do! i'm tempted to add bacon to mine . . . dill is also delicious in the mix.
