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!
