Recipe: Edamame

Usually served as an appetizer in Japanese restaurants, edamame is a perfect snack to have at home. It is fresh soybeans which is served simply in a bowl with or without fine sea salt. Soybeans have the highest amount of protein compared to all other legumes.

Plunge fresh edamame into boiling water. Bring water back to a boil and cook beans for 7 minutes. Drain and place under running water to cool. Serve with a sprinkling of fine sea salt.

Remove beans from pods before placing in mouth.
