Edamame is the name for immature soybeans in their pod.
They’re an excellent source of high-quality plant protein. One cup (155 grams) provides close to 17 grams of protein for less than 200 calories.
You can prepare edamame by boiling or steaming the pods or by thawing them in your microwave. Sprinkle the warm pods with a little sea salt or soy sauce before chewing on them gently to eat the beans inside.
