How to Eat Edamame

Five Methods:

The Japanese soybean, edamame, is rich in protein and dietary fiber. Because the soybean is still immature in its pod, unlike the mature soybeans found in tofu, the soft texture of the bean makes it a perfect ingredient for adding nutritional value to any meal. After the edamame has been either steamed or boiled and touched with a pinch of salt for taste, you can eat it in a variety of ways, from eating it plain, making it into a dip, or enjoying it as a key ingredient in fried rice or salad.

  • Question
    Can I eat the whole bean, pod and all?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    You can eat the whole pod, but it may be too fibrous for your liking. You can remove the beans with your teeth or a knife, and just eat the bean rather than the entire pod. Some places also sell their edamame pre-shelled, so you will not have to remove them from the pod.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    Can I eat them straight out of the freezer bag if they're shelled?

    Check the bag for whether they are pre-cooked -- if so, sure.

Quick Summary

If you want to eat edamame plain, place the cooked edamame in a bowl and sprinkle it with soy sauce and a little cayenne pepper. Place one of the edamame pods in your pod and use your teeth to scrape out the beans, then discard the pods. If you have any leftover edamame, keep it in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Did this summary help you?
  • Never eat the pods. Always shell the beans after cooking them.
  • Avoid keeping it in the refrigerator for more than a week, as the beans get mushy and lose their texture.
  • Some edamame brands distribute the beans already shelled. This is a convenience, as some frozen bags can be steamed in the microwave as is.
