Introduction

This is a Whole Foods Market recipe I found recently. This particular version includes my modifications. I like to eat this with a greek seasoned grilled chicken breast or a grilled chicken breast marinated in balsamic vinegairette. This is a Whole Foods Market recipe I found recently.

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 16-oz bag frozen, shelled edamame
    1/2 cup dried cranberries
    1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chiffonade (sliced into thin strips)
    1 Tbsp. olive oil
    1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 cup reduced-fat feta crumbles
    Salt to taste

Directions

Bring small pan of water to boil and remove from heat. Put cranberries in water and let sit for 5 minutes to rehydrate. Drain well, removing as much water as possible (I squeeze lightly in paper towels) and set aside.

Cook edamame in boiling salted water for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop cooking. Pat dry.

Toss edamame, cranberries, basil, olive oil and pepper together. Add salt, if desired. Gently stir in feta cheese. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Serves 4.

    This recipe is light and refreshing and very healthy! It also keeps for a few days in the fridge too, still tasting fresh each day. - 8/12/11

    Yum! Thank you for sharing --- it was just the right light, refreshing lunch for a hot summer day (the fresh basil from my garden was put to great use!) :) - 6/18/11

    This sounded intriguing, I had only recently discovered edamame and I love craisins. The textures and flavors combine beautifully... definitely a keeper

    This is very good. This is my first time trying edamame, and I chose this recipe because I love feta and also always have dried cranberries on hand. I'm happy to say it tasted as good as the recipe sounded, and it was so easy to prepare! Thanks. - 2/9/09
