Edamame are green soybeans. Munch on them for an easy snack—they’re tasty and good for you, too.
- 2 Tbs. soy sauce
- 2 tsp. toasted sesame seeds
- 1/4 tsp. sugar
- 1 bag (10 oz.) frozen edamame in their pods, thawed
In a bowl, stir together the soy sauce, sesame seeds and sugar.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the edamame and boil for 5 minutes, then drain.
Add the edamame to the soy sauce mixture. Using clean hands or a large spoon, stir gently to coat the edamame with the sauce.
Serve warm or at room temperature. To eat the edamame, peel away the pod and pop the beans into your mouth. Serves 4.
