We LOVE steamed edamame (eda-mommy) around here!! They are so salty and delicious and perfect for snacking! They’re fun to pop out of their shells and eat them straight from the pod. They make an excellent appetizer and perfect side dish. They’re great to munch on while watching a movie or football game instead of popcorn or peanuts. I’m not even going to say they’re a “healthy alternative” because that makes it sound like they may be inferior in taste. But no way — edamame are delicious!! They’re the perfect combination of sweet, salty, and fun to eat.

I always feel a little silly ordering edamame at restaurants because it is literally so, so easy and just as good to make at home. All you need are edamame, salt, boiling water and less than 10 minutes.

We buy frozen edamame in bulk so we always have it on hand. I’ve even bought large containers of fresh edamame from Costco, stuck the container in a gallon size ziploc bag, and froze it myself. Either way, it freezes great and it’s so nice to always have it on hand.

You may have seen this Moen pot filler when I posted our kitchen makeover a while back.

We installed it when we updated our appliances, and I love it! It’s so nice to have water above the stove so I don’t have to carry heavy, full pots back and forth from the sink. The pot filler swivels, turns, and extends to easily reach any eye on the stove.

When the water reaches a boil, dump in 2 cups fresh or frozen edamame. Cook for 6-7 minutes (you don’t have to wait for the water to return to a boil before you start timing) until edamame are tender and easily release from their pod.

This will take those bad boys to a whole new level. Crazy good and adds little to the calorie content.

1/4 c soy sauce
1 Tbl brown sugar
1/4 c rice vinegar
healthy squirt of Siracha
1 tbl Garlic chili paste
1 tbl toasted Sesame oil

A short burst in the microwave to melt the sugar and stir it in then I poured a few teaspoons over my hot Edamame. Hot, sweet, spicy and delicious.

I’m going to try not to sit in the corner and pout for the rest of the day over your pot filler.

One of our favorite restaurants steams them then tosses them in some sriracha for spicy kick!

Just a note on your pronunciation: Japanese is phonetic. It’s (eh-duh-mah-meh).
And I love to add a twist to mine! Just squeeze a little lemon before sprinkling with salt!

I spritz mine with some olive oil so the salt clings to the pods. It has made a big difference…now all the salt doesn’t sink to the bottom of the bowl!

I don’t care for soy but as a vegetarian of more than 30 years I adore a very similar veggie which is sugar snap peas. And they’re available fresh, but pricey, or frozen which is much less expensive and better tasting. Just my opinion, of course. Almost forgot, they are now available fresh and bagged and those are delicious too. And much less expensive. I love eating them raw with olive oil and a little salt and ground pepper. Or just plain.
