Say it, Eat it: Edamame

Written by: Shannon Bryan

Edamame[eta ma may]

Soybeans in the pod. They could get confused for snow peas in a police lineup, except unlike snow peas, your blunt human teeth can’t bite through an edamame pod (but you’ll sure look good trying). Instead, the beans are squeezed out in a fashion similar to the way one might go after a Flavor Ice.

Hear it:

Eat it:

  • Try the steamed soybeans in the pod at Yosaku
  • Green Elephant has organic edamame seasoned with sea salt
