Edamame are green soybeans. The pods are boiled or steamed and served with salt. It is a great snack or side dish and my kids love them.

Ingredients
1 lb fresh edamame in pods, or frozen edamame in pods

2 Tbsp and more sea salt (The desirable amount of salt vary, depending on the amount of water to boil edamame.)

Method

Cut off the stem end of each pod. Wash edamame well and put in a bowl. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and rub edamame with salt. (If you are using frozen edamame, please start from the next step.)

Boil lots of water in a large pot. Add about 2 Tbsp of salt in the boiling water.

Put edamame in the boiling water and boil for 3 to 4 minutes, or softened. Drain edamame in a colander

Put in a bowl and sprinkle with sea salt to taste.

Eat by squeezing the beans out of the pods with fingers.
