FAQs about edamame
You have numerous options when it comes to eating edamame, as you can prepare it hot or cold, shelled, or eaten straight from the pod.
- Baked: Remove the bean from the pod, drizzle with seasonings, and spread them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 to 15 minutes.
- Boiled or steamed: Add the in-shell edamame to a pot of boiling, salted water, and cook for five to six minutes until the pods are tender.
- Pan-fried: For a smoky taste, cook the edamame in a hot frying pan set over high heat. Lightly char them on one side, and turn them to cook on the other side.
- Steamed: Place 1 inch of water in a pot, and bring it to a boil. Place the edamame in a steaming basket or colander above the water. Cover the pot, and steam for five to 10 minutes.
One of the reasons why edamame is so popular is that it's a complete plant-based protein. It's as good in quality as animal protein, yet it doesn't contain any saturated fat. It has all the amino acids needed to maintain muscles, healthy blood, and hormone balance. Like other soybeans, edamame has natural levels of phytoestrogens, which can alleviate symptoms of perimenopause. They are rich in vitamins and minerals, especially folate and vitamin K. Edamane also has a high amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce your risk for heart disease.
Although the two are part of the legume family and have a similar appearance, they're vastly different foods. Edamame is much thicker than the sugar snap peas, and they might only have a few beans on the inside, whereas the peas have several beans inside the pod. You also open edamame pods to eat the beans inside. While edamame has twice as many calories compared to peas, they also have three times the protein and more potassium.
