Why We Love This Edamame Recipe
I’m not proud to admit that I truly knew very little about soybeans, what products are derived from soy, and the health benefits before I took a trip to visit a soybean farm in Maryland. My mind was blown, and I’ll never look at a little soybean plant the same way again. Soy is such an under-appreciated source of vitamins and minerals and has zero cholesterol. It’s truly heart-healthy and is so much more than just soy sauce.
Game day Sundays are well and truly here, and as much as it’s a great excuse to splurge on the food, I do like to serve up a healthy snack too! This edamame recipe is so quick and easy to make and it’s so yummy too!
Variations on Edamame Beans
The great thing about these soybeans is their versatility. You can season them with just about anything, and I guarantee they will taste great! Try Creole seasoning, Italian seasoning, ranch seasoning, or herbs de Provence for a different flavor. You could even toss them simply with some soy sauce and sesame oil.

How to Store and Reheat
Store leftover edamame in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Enjoy cold or reheated in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or in the air fryer at 350°F for 3-4 minutes.
How to Freeze
Freeze edamame in an airtight container or Ziplock bag for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.
Edamame makes a great snack or starter. They’re great to dip in Korean BBQ sauce, yum yum sauce, sweet and sour sauce, or bang bang sauce. Serve them up fresh along with Miso salmon, honey chicken, ramen, or these P.F. Chang’s lettuce wraps!
Edamame is a young soy bean and they are a great vegetable to incorporate into your diet. It is low in calories and is a great source of vitamin C, iron, protein, and calcium, and contains no cholesterol. Edamame is super easy to prepare and are great for snacking and easy to incorporate into meals. If you haven’t tried it before, this edamame recipe is for you!
We prefer to boil the whole pods in water to cook them through evenly.
Properly cooked edamame should break apart easily when squished with your fingers.
While it’s not required, briefly rinsing the beans in cold water will help stop the cooking process, keeping them from turning mushy.
The pods of the edamame are not edible, it’s the tasty beans inside that you eat. The beans are removed easily – just pop a pod in your mouth and slide them out with your teeth. You can of course remove the beans from the pods separately, but then you wouldn’t get all of the delicious flavor from the Everything Bagel Seasoning in this recipe!
