What is Edamame?
These are long green pods of young soybeans. They are soybeans that have not fully matured and are then cooked to perfection. We usually find edamame in Asian cooking recipes but they are also great cooked and eaten on their own as a simple side dish or even as a snack. We love eating them in this Salad with Black Beans and Edamame, in this Open Faced Fried Egg Sandwich with Edamame, and in this simple garlic parmesan edamame recipe too!
