Edamame is more commonly known as a soybean, harvested at the peak of ripening right before it reaches the "hardening" time. Edamame means "Beans on Branches" . A good source of protein. Enjoy as a snack squeezed directly from the well seasoned pods into the mouth with the fingers. Hence finger licking good!
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add edamame and continue boiling until beans are crisp-tender, about 6 minutes.
- Meanwhile mix remaining ingredients together.
- When done, run cold water over, or put in ice water, to stop cooking. Drain well; pat excess moisture off, and toss in the dressing.
- Top with seeds.
- To eat, hold pod by stem end, and slide the individual beans out with your teeth. Discard pod.
