Edamame is a Japanese snack akin to American boiled peanuts. Edamame is made from fresh soybean pods, often served as a snack or accompanying sushi dishes. Edamame has 6 g of fat per cup, with 16 g of protein and 8 g of fiber. Soybeans are better nutritional choice compared to peanuts that contain 71 g of fat with 37 g of protein. Edamame readily absorbs the flavor of added seasoning.

Step 1

Fill the bottom of the pot with water. Bring the water to a boil.

Step 2

Place soybeans, still in pods, into the steamer basket. Steam the soybean pods for five minutes. The pods should pop open when squeezed at the corner.

Step 3

Mix 1 tsp. of sesame oil with 1 tsp. of sea salt.

Step 4

Drain the soybean pods. Add them to a bowl with the sesame oil and salt. Toss the soybeans until all are covered with the seasoning.
