Edamame, [pr. eh-dah-MAH-meh], is the Japanese name for fresh soybeans. This name literally means "twig bean" and refers to young soybeans harvested with a part of its stem attached. They're available unshelled and frozen in the Asian supermarkets. They make for an easy, tasty, and healthy snack.

Preparation : 5 min Cooking : 5 min
80 calories/serving


110 g edamame/soybeans, unshelled 1 cup
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g


  1. In a pot, bring salted water to a boil. Add the edamame beans. As soon as the water comes to a boil again, cook 5 min, or until the pods begin to soften.
  2. Drain the edamame, then serve them warm or at room temperature. You may split the bean pods with your fingers, then eat the small, green beans inside. Or you can do as the Japanese do, i.e. put the entire bean in your mouth, then squeeze the beans out of the pod to eat them. You may season the beans with a little salt.
