Edamame

Ingredients:

  • edamame, as much as you would like to prepare (I use fresh, but frozen is easier to find and works well)
  • salt

Directions:

  • If using fresh, strip all of the pods off of your soybean bunch and boil them whole in salted water for 5 minutes.
  • (Start timing once the water returns to a boil) Drain the pods, liberally salt them, and then slip the seeds out of the pods directly into your mouth.
  • Have a discard bowl handy for the shells.
  • You may never want to eat potato chips again!

    One of favorite snacks. I have started just having them instead of some fattening preservative loaded snack when watching a movie. Thanks for sharing, hope others will at least try them!

    I eat edamame all the time, and I discovered another great version at a bar in Hawaii. They add crushed garlic cloves to the salted water. Yum!!!

    We love these, even our 10 year old DD does. They are tasty, and they’re fun to eat! I like to sprinkle with coarse salt.

    This is the tastiest easiest snack-hands down-! Goes really well with beer (we had Sapporo) instead of peanuts.

    No need to go to the sushi bar anymore, now that I have this recipe. These tasted better than the ones at the sushi bar 🙂 I couldn’t find frozen ones so I used fresh. I ate them all by myself!!

    My parents are both from Japan, and my dad is very much into gardening. He actually grows the edamame in the summer and preps these *FRESH* for us to eat. Yummy yummy. I’m away at university, so reading this recipe and thinking about my dad is making me a little homesick… Hands down the best snack on a hot summer day!

    I live in Japan now and these are DELICIOUS and HEALTHY! Even the 4yr old loves them (peeling them is fun too!) and the teenager and friends gobble them up :). I make up a big bowl and they’re gone very quickly. These are great for anyone watching their weight or looking for an alternative to fatty snacks. High in protein, low in fat and calories, and very affordable – this sure beats carrot sticks – and you don’t need dip to make them taste good! Try sprinkling with a good sea or Kosher salt. Recommended with beer as an adult snack, I enjoy just snacking on these with a glass of wine while surfing the web. Look for edamame in the frozen section and stock up to have on hand for your next snack attack!

    Edamame are great! Sometimes I like to sprinkle them with soy sauce or ponzu sauce instead of salt before serving– it gives a great flavor. But this was excellent as well! Thanks!

    One of my favorite snacks, and it’s pretty much guilt-free to boot! I’ve come to love edamame as much, if not more than, boiled peanuts – – – and I’m from Georgia! 🙂

    Wonderfully simple and healthy! My roommates and I would eat these around the table as an appetizer or while watching a movie. I suggest making a lot if you’re sharing with a couple people.
