Cooking Notes

Chopped ginger in a jar is usually found in the produce section of the supermarket near the bottled garlic. An equal amount of peeled, finely minced fresh ginger can be used instead.

Edamame Soup

6 cups reduced-sodium, fat-free chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups (about 10 ounces) frozen shelled edamame
1 cup already sliced white mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon bottled fresh ginger*
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
Dash of Asian (toasted) sesame oil
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
Salt and black pepper, to taste

Heat broth over medium-high heat in a 3-quart or larger soup pot or saucepan. Add edamame, mushrooms, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil and cilantro and bring to a full boil (uncovered).

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 15 minutes to blend flavors. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately in shallow bowls.
