EDAMAME IS PRONOUNCED – ED-UH-MAH-ME
Edamame is a delicious and nutritious heart-healthy food that anyone who is interested in healthy eating may want to consider incorporating into their diet. It’s been grown for many centuries in Eastern Asia.
Edamame is baby soybeans. They grow in pods clustered on bushy plants. While the soybeans are still tender they’re picked, and most often lightly boiled or steamed, and then quickly frozen. These beans are young soybeans that are harvested before the seeds harden. It’s the only form of natural soy (tofu, tempeh etc… are not natural forms). Edamame beans have a subtle buttery flavor and are crunchy in texture and found inside a fuzzy green pod.
