Edamame Toasts with Sriracha Butter & Honey Drizzle

This week is all about snacks.

And apps, I guess. Because this could totally be an appetizer too.

The beauty of this toast is that it’s so so simple, yet looks so damn pretty.

And kinda fancy, right?  Maybe even a bit posh, too?

YES.  Edamame toasts are totally posh.

Let’s eat yo.

This is one of those recipes where I randomly started stringing food together and it just completely worked.  Like, weeeerk levels of work, ya dig?  Lemme break it down for ya:

People love avocado toasts, so let’s do a variation with edamame!  Check.

Peeps are obsessed with sriracha, so let’s make a sriracha butter!  Check.

Honey is pretty whack on its own, but is it amaze on other things?  Check.

thought + thought + thought = THIS.

In a world without cheese – which, by the way, is barely worth living in – one is forced to rely on other devices.  Crutches, if you will.  And my crutch has definitely been the sweet & spicy combo.  It’s just so reliable, ya know?  And so freakin’ tasty!  So when I decided to mash edamame on a sriracha buttered toast and drizzle that ish with honey, I knew I would like it – but would you like it?

DUH. You crazy kids all share my superb taste.

I know this might seem a little out there, but trust me – There’s so much texture and flavor crammed into one neat little toast, there’s nothing not to love.  Or, ya know, become obsessed with.  Because obviously I inhaled twelve of these without blinking.

From the crunchy bread to the crisp edamame, I seriously couldn’t get enough of these.  It’s refreshing yet still savory, if that makes sense.  The edamame keeps things cool against the savory sriracha butter and sweet honey in a way thats complimenting, not competing.  And I especially die for the gorgeous burnt orange color the bread turns in the toaster – I mean perfection, right?

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that you can really tailor it to your own personal taste buds.  Like if you overdid it on the sriracha, you can balance things out by going extra hard on the honey.  Or if that spice is just a little too mild, throw some crushed red pepper flakes on top to amp things right back up.  Either way your smashed edamame will enhance everything just right, with a mellow nutty texture and hints of lemon and garlic that zing and tang and 100% posh.

It’s all about the posh.
