Instructions Checklist
  • Cook edamame according to package instructions.

  • Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water; drain edamame and set 3/4 cup aside.

  • In a blender, whirl remaining 1 cup edamame with ginger, lemon juice, salt, and about 1/3 to 1/2 cup reserved cooking water.

  • Transfer edamame paste to a bowl, mix with whole edamame and chives.

  • Bring a large, deep pot of salted water to a gentle boil and add vegetable oil.

  • Fill wonton wrappers with 1 tsp. edamame filling and top filling with a cilantro leaf (cover unfilled wrappers with a moist towel). Moisten wrapper edges with water, fold over filling, and press to seal. Boil wontons in batches until they float to surface, 2 minutes. Serve with soy sauce.
