Edamame (tender soybeans with a slightly Lima bean flavor) are quickly becoming a new favorite of mine because they are so versatile. They pair really well with the peppery flavor of arugula!


  • 8 cups arugula, cut into small bite sized pieces
  • 2 cups frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. honey
  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 oz. fresh Parmesan, grated or finely shredded


Cook edamame according to package directions, drain and let cool.

Whisk vinegar, honey, and oil together in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Toss arugula and edamame in a serving bowl, add cheese, drizzle with dressing, toss again, and serve.

Roast shelled edamame beans, lightly coated with extra virgin olive oil, on a baking sheet in the oven. Allow to cool and add to your salad for extra flavor, crunchiness, and lots of protein.

Edamame is a delicious young soybean, often eaten straight out of the pods. You can find them in the frozen section of any grocery store, in the pod or shelled. I prefer to eat them from the pod; I find it more fun and much more tasty. Cooking the pods in a pot of boiling green tea gives it a nice dimension, aroma, and lovely texture. This is a fantastic appetizer or side dish.

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 pkg (16 oz) frozen whole edamame
  • 6 tsp green tea or 6 green tea teabags
  • coarse sea salt


  1. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil and pour over tea. Allow to steep for 5 minutes.
  2. Strain tea (or remove teabags) into a large pot.
  3. Add frozen edamame to tea and bring to a simmer over high heat. Cook for 7 minutes.
  4. Drain (I reserved the liquid to make another batch).
  5. Serve in a bowl, topped with coarse sea salt.

It would come as no surprise if the magic beans planted in the "Jack and the Bean Stalk" fairytale were soybeans. The versatile virtues Mother Nature has bestowed on this one legume are far reaching indeed.

I feel rather foolish asking this, what is edamame? I've never heard of it except on this site.

It is the bean inside the soy bean.

It's a type of bean. Kind of looks like a snap pea.


They are delicious! You have to try them. My mouth is watering right now thinking about it. :)
