How To Cook Edamame

Edamame are soybean pods that are popular in Japanese and Chinese cuisine. They are versatile legumes that can be added to numerous dishes or served alone. Edamame is a great source of plant protein, fiber and folate, making it a smart snacking option. You can get edamame fresh or frozen at your local grocer. It can be served in the pods, lightly salted, as a healthy appetizer or snack. Simply squeeze the beans out by biting the pod. You will get some of the seasoning from the pod, but do not eat the pod. Edamame is easy to prepare and the beans make a colorful addition to stir fries. In this video, Chef Mark provides an online cooking lesson for making delicious edamame. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
