 3 unique edamame recipes

Edamame is one of my favorite snacks. I used to only order it when I was out getting sushi but it's so easy to make, I have now made it an at-home snack food. Each one of these recipes brings a little something different to the party. They all use frozen in the pod (steam in bag) edamame that can be found at almost any grocery store.
