Once you've boiled or steamed the pods (see INFO), the edamame beans can be extracted and used in many ways. Mash them up and add them to humus, put them whole on salads, add them to soups, or freeze them and enjoy them later, hot or cold. Below are a few recipes that our edamame followers have enjoyed.

It is recommended to cook edamame before eating and to not eat the beans raw. Raw soybeans contain phytic acid (from phytates), which binds and prevents mineral absorption (especially zinc, calcium, and magnesium). Processingedamame reduces the possibility of these issues.
