You've probably had edamame if you've ever dined at a Japanese restaurant. These young green soybeans are usually served in their fuzzy pods, boiled and seasoned with coarse salt, and eaten by dragging the pod between the teeth to release the beans. Edamame is a popular snack or appetizer due to its nutty, buttery flavor and slightly crispy texture, but the beans are also low in calories, high in protein and fiber, and relatively simple to prepare at home.
Edamame are extremely nutritious, and due to their high protein content, they frequently become a staple of plant-based diets. They are also one of the few vegetables that contain all nine essential amino acids. The beans are also high in polyunsaturated oils, such as omega-3 and omega-6 chains.
However, there can be too much of a good thing, as edamame contains phytic acid, which can generate inhibitors in your digestive system that impede nutritional intake. Edamame also include oxalates, which can irritate the mucous membranes in the digestive tract and cause long-term inflammation in certain people. Moderation is the key, as it is with everything else.
Edamame is available fresh, frozen, and dry-roasted with a variety of flavors. The fresh variety only keeps in the fridge for a day or two. Once boiled, the pods can be refrigerated for up to a few days. Frozen edamame will last for about a year in the freezer.
To prepare, boil fresh pods for four to five minutes before draining and immersing in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. Frozen edamame has already been cooked and simply has to be reheated for two to three minutes in boiling water. Season the pods with coarse salt and, if desired, other spices such as garlic or cayenne pepper.
Frozen mukimame (frozen shelled edamame) is another option if you want to save time, simply add a little salt, salads, and stir-fries. Enjoy them on their own or add our shelled edamame to a stir fry, salad, poke bowl, or a variety of other dishes.
