Edamame is one of my favourite things to snack on.  And it’s so simple to make, I feel a bit ridiculous calling this a “recipe”.  But, I realize that the “trick” with edamame – it’s in the freezer section.  If this was obvious to you, sorry.  If it wasn’t, you’re not alone – I’ve sent a friend to get edamame once and she was like, “I can’t find it anywhere, I kept walking the produce section and I don’t see it anywhere”.

 My reply, “Oh right.  It’s in the frozen section.”

At its simplest, all you do is boil the pods for about 5 minutes, strain and consume.  These get addictive when you add in the flavour, LOL.

  • 1 bag of frozen edamame (in pods)
  • salt, to taste (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon of toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  • Have a large container of cold water on hand.
  • Bring a separate pot of water to boil.  Add edamame and simmer for about 3-5 minutes, until bright green.
  • Strain excess water and toss edamame into cold water for 1 minute.  Strain and serve with a sprinkle of salt and sesame seeds, if desired.  Keep an empty bowl for the discarded pods – they build up fast!
