Simmered Spiced Soybeans Pg 143

I love edamame, so when I saw this recipe I knew I wanted to try it. The final result was okay, but the dish was not as flavorful as I wanted. I definitely added more salt and wished it was spicier. That may have been due to the fact that I did not have ALL the ingredients. I could not find mustard oil, a red cayenne chile, or coriander leaves. Although it is possible my local grocer had these items and I could not find them with the 3 children I was trying to entertain while I perused the spice and oil isles... I would make this again.

I was especially excited to use my mortar and pestle that a good friend of mine had given me. Up until now it had just sat around lookin' pretty.

red cayenne chili - in the produce section. Just a red hot pepper.

Corriender leaves = cilantro

I think you were out of luck on the mustard seeds.

OH my! I am such an idiot! But I did actually buy some mustard seeds, but I need mustard oil...what?

cilantro! I am shaking my head!
