TF Recipes #7 – Green Soya Beans & Cheese On Toast

Before I set foot in Japan many, many years ago the idea of eating salted green soya beans (edamame in Japanese) would have been unimaginable for me as my vegetable intake was fairly limited. However, after continuously being given some as a starter dish at some Japanese izakayas I began to develop a taste for such a thing. These edamame beans, which are boiled in their pods, became a regular part of going out for me and sure are a great beer snack.

Everything you need to make this delicacy! (Star Wars figures are optional!)

Fact is that I hardly ever eat them nowadays though as I just don’t go out, and that was actually the case before Covid-19 came along! With so much time being spent inside the Tokyo Fox Global Operations Centre recently due to this pandemic it should’ve meant a bit more creativity from me in the kitchen. Instead though we just have another Japanese delicacy blended with the simplicity of toast!

Since doing this a few weeks ago I have found out that 7 Eleven convenience stores did actually sell an edamame and cheese bread roll in late Winter/early Spring but unfortunately I never saw that. Never mind that though, here are the five basic steps to follow for making this authentic (?) Japanese dish……

Step One: Having assembled your ingredients, put one or two slices of bread into the toaster for 2-3 mins.

Step Two: Spread butter on the toast (if desired) followed by the edamame beans!

Step Three: Add some grated cheese as many things are better with cheese on and this is no exception.

Step Four: Put the slices back into the toaster for another minute or so until the cheese melts.

Step Five: Put the edamame-on-toast in your mouth, eat and enjoy!


But what did it taste like I hear you ask. Only one way to find out!!
