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.
This was a nice way to eat. I had some in the freezer but wasn't sure what to do with them. I'm glad I tried this recipe. Garlic, fresh ginger and sesame are a great combo. Made for Veggie Swap 62
These were delish....my first time making my own Edamame....they are the bomb.com...next time I will make them spicy!
I usually serve edamame only lightly salted, but this was just as easy and a bit of an interesting change. If you like sesame, you'll love this.
