Edamame [Snack Packed With Goodness]

When we were in Penang, my younger boy did not show any interest in edamame, I did not expect him eating the other day but he surprised me. Thus, I bought another pack today for boys healthy snack. If you are new to edamame (枝豆), it is immature soybean and commonly boil or steam before serving. Edamame is rich in carbohydrates, protein, dietary fiber, and micronutrients, particularly folates, manganese, and vitamin K.[source: wikipedia

For its goodness, I can see many mame days to come. I always boil the beans, perhaps next time I should try the baked version. By the way, I added the leftover in sake meshi (salmon rice) I cooked for dinner.

200 g fresh edamame (in pods), rinse
1/4 tsp salt
500 ml water

  1. In a pot, bring water to a boil.
  2. Add in salt and edamame, cook for 2-3 minutes stir a few times for even cooking. 
  3. Drain and rinse with running water to bring down the temperature quickly. Drain well and serve with extra bowl/basket at the side for empty pods.
