Most American's aren't familiar with fresh soy beans (edamame) in Chinese cooking. Here's your chance to try a dish. Don't use sliced bamboo shoots, as you have to shred them. You can serve this hot or cold.


  1. Shred bamboo shoots.
  2. Remove membrane from soy beans by rubbing and rinse.
  3. Bring all ingredients except soy beans and bamboo shoots to a boil.
  4. Add soy beans and bamboo shoots.
  5. When it boils again, turn heat low and simmer for 1/2 hour, adding water to keep from burning.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. Sprinkle with sesame oil.
