Garlic and Chipoltle Edamame

Sushi is one of my all time favorite meals when I eat out at a restaurant. I always order Edamame to nibble on.
I decided to try them at home with an added flavor of garlic, chipoltle chile spice, and black sea salt that I bought on a trip in Hawaii.
Garlic and Chipoltle Edamame
Here are the Ingredients:
  • 2 cups edamame, frozen
  • 2 large cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipoltle chili seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon black sea salt, or kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Bring water to a boil and place in frozen edamame. Bring back to a boil and cook for 3 minutes. When done strain and pat dry with paper towels. Heat olive oil in a frying pan and saute garlic. Be careful not to burn. Toss in edamame and season with  chipoltle seasoning and stir to coat. Remove from pan and place in a bowl. Season with salt and enjoy.

Chicken Roasted with Garlic and Yukon Potatoes

I know how we all are trying to eat healthy and most dinners are chicken or fish, but if you love garlic like I do, you will love this chicken dish.

 I like to pair this dish with a nice glass of Riesling.
  • 1 pound chicken legs
  • 1 pound chicken thighs
  • 6 large Yukon potatoes
  • 20 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons good maple syrup
Preheat oven 425
Melt butter in the baking dish in the oven. Add the chicken, potatoes, and garlic and drizzle with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss together so all are well coated. Place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes turning all once during baking. Remove from oven and drizzle with maple syrup and bake for another 20 minutes until chicken runs clear and potatoes are cooked through. Squeeze garlic from skin and spread on chicken. Serve
