This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


1 lb. edamame in pods, frozen or fresh



Fill a medium-sized pot three-quarters full with fresh, cold water and put it on the stove on high heat. When the water comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium high, add the edamame pods and cook for five minutes. Remove from heat. In a colander in a sink, drain the edamame, then run cold water over the cooked edamame to cool it. Place the cooled, drained edamame in a dish and sprinkle lightly with salt. To eat, press the pods between your fingers to push the beans out, or put two-thirds of the pod in your mouth and, clamping your teeth gently over the pod, pull it out, popping the beans into your mouth.
