Edamame (枝豆)

Edamame is a Japanese  young green soybean that can be eaten fresh. A Summer popular snack that is served throughout the day. The best way is to serve with a jug of cool beer. Edamame is a good nutritious snack which is rich in protein, dietary fiber, manganese, carbohydrate, vitamin A, U1, C , and many more. Apart from snack, it's also popular to make a soup or tofu due to the decent light green color it really turns food into a beautiful color. So far I enjoy as a snack most. The bean has a very nice aroma and decent sweet taste. Adding less salt is the best to enjoy the real taste of the bean.


1 pack Fresh Edamame
6 tablespoons of salt
2 liter of water

1. Put one tablespoon of salt and rub the bean lightly, add water and wash well. Repeat washing 2 times. ( To wash off the small sting on the skin)
2. Washing  (cut off the stem if you wish or just boil as it is)
3. Heat water to boil, add 3 tablespoons of salt then add Edamame. Let it boil for 3 minutes.

4. Take out, put it in ice water, drain well. Drain it in the fridge for at least one hour before serving.

Ready to serve Edamame
