10-Minute Restaurant-Style Edamame
We LOVE edamame (eda-mommy) around here!! It’s so salty and delicious and perfect for snacking! It’s fun to pop out of the shells and eat straight from the pod. This healthy snack is an excellent appetizer and perfect side dish.
It’s great to munch on while watching a movie or football game instead of popcorn or peanuts. It’s the perfect combination of sweet, salty, and fun to eat.
If you’re wondering how to eat edamame, this is one of our favorite edamame recipes!
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 is salt and water and less than 10 minutes to make!
We buy frozen edamame in bulk so we always have it on hand.
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.
To make the edamame, bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a large pot. Add one tablespoon kosher salt.
When the water reaches a boil, dump in 2 cups fresh or frozen edamame. Cook for 5 minutes (you don’t have to wait for the water to return to a boil before you start timing) until tender and easily release from their pod.
And toss generously with a coarse finishing salt like kosher salt or fleur de sel.
We are addicted!! It is definitely one of our favorite edamame recipes. I love how easy it is to make quickly on weeknights. It’s the perfect after-school snack, appetizer, or side dish. Hope you enjoy!!
