The Instacart guide to edamame products
Edamame (eh-DAH-ma-meh) is a type of soybean that includes tempeh, miso, and tamari. However, unlike the other types of soybeans, edamame can be eaten without being processed. Its name translates to "beans on a branch," since you can pick the pods off the branches and eat them as they are. Technically, edamame is considered legumes since you can eat these beans directly off the plant.
Although edamame has gained popularity in western culture, it's actually been around for thousands of years, first harvested in China. They were then introduced in Japan and remain a huge part of Asian dishes. Edamame took off in the United States around the 1970s when consumers sought more organic and natural foods. Since then, it's been used as an appetizer, snack food, and parts of various dishes.
Despite coming from the same types of soybeans that make tofu, edamame and tofu taste completely different. Edamame has more flavor and features a sweet buttery taste that entices many palates. There's a hint of pea flavor with some nuttiness. However, its texture is firmer than that of a pea.
