    Question How Do YOU Edamame?

    Help! I have a frozen bag of edamame (baby soy beans) in the freezer and I have no idea how to eat them. Boil? Roast? Straight from the freezer? Any and all ideas will be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help!

    Eda wha?

    Just kidding, I have absolutely no idea and have personally never tried any (to my knowledge! ).

    I'd be interested in hearing what others have to say.

    I boil them for a couple of minutes (until they are warm) and scoop them out and salt them.....then just pop the beans out of the pods into my mouth!

    i make them all the time.
    like angel, i boil them. but i generally do it in the microwave. i put them in a tupperware container and almost cover them in water. then i place the lid on top loosely, and zap for about 3 minutes.
    drain, salt and eat!!
    great snack when you're having a salty craving...

    I steam them for 3-4 minutes, salt them and they're good to go.

    Delicious!!!

    Thank you guys! You rock! I found mine in the frozen foods section of just the regular grocery store (Food Lion). So, why do you salt them, if you aren't eatting the pods? Plus, have you ever roasted them? Y'all are great! Thanks for all the help! (oh, and what can you compare the taste to - and what kind of points are we talking about?)

    I buy them already out of the shell in the freezer section. I usually just nuke them for a minute and sprinkle with chile pepper salt or wasabi infused canola oil. MMMMM.

    The brand I have is 1 point for 1/2 cup

    You salt the pods because you use your teeth to scrape out the beans when you eat them, so you end up getting some of the salty flavor.

    Brooke--I'd be very surprised if your local grocery stores didn't carry edamame in the freezer section. It's very hard to find fresh, but I've seen the frozen all over the place. I get mine at Safeway or Sam's Club or Trader Joe's.

    The frozen ones I got require no cooking. I just thaw them at room temp, pop them out of the pods and eat 'em up. Yum!!

    Thumbs up Re: How Do YOU Edamame?

    Well..........they're so good they serve them in Japanese bars instead of peanuts!

    A very silky texture.

    I don't think I've ever read anyone say anything bad about them. Most people love them! :bcbsalute

    Mc Donalds has a new chicken salad with them in there if you wanted to try them without buying a whole bag. My family loves them. Tastes a little like sweet corn.

    I lived in Japan 14 years ago and fell in love with them. I'm so excited that they are becoming easy to find. I've found them in several local grocery stores and a local Asian store. I love them best just boiled and salted. I'm glad I have some in the freezer 'cause I think I'm going to go make a batch!

    I went to my grocery store again, looked everywhere and couldn't find them. I found a manager and he directed me to some pre-peeled edamame in the fresh produce section, by the organic stuff. I bought it and am so happy that I know where to find it now! I have been going to Japanese restaurants just to get my fix

    My daughter had been telling me about edamame for weeks and I saw some in the frozen section so I bought a couple of bags. These are absolutely scrumptious. All I had to do was thaw. I put them in a bowl and instead of reaching for something that I shouldn't!!! I snacked on them while I was watching TV. I just pulled it out of the pod with my teeth and ate and beans. Took just the right amount of time where I wasn't scarfing down and was filled up with just a small amount. Another on my list of absolute favorites.

    yummy! I buy the brand Joanne had a picture of. I just heat and heat. Sometimes I just let the bag defrost.

    It also makes a good dip... I have to find the recipe.

    I'm such an idiot. I ate edamame week 1 and saw the NI and assumed, without looking at my slider, that 1/2 cup was 2 pts because of the 100 calories.

    So I've been eating under points some days!
