Simple Steamed Edamame


Simple Steamed Edamame

Edamame (green soybeans) make an easy and nearly instant grab-and go snack: tasty, chewy beans that you pop out of their pods with your fingers or teeth. (You season the pods so that the flavor gets on the beans while you’re eating—but then you don’t actually eat the pods!) Look for edamame with the frozen vegetables at your local supermarket.

  • Medium pot with lid
  • Pot holders
  • Colander
  • Serving bowl
  • Measuring spoons


  • 1 (1-pound) bag frozen edamame (in their pods)
  • 1/2 lemon, cut in quarters
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Put 1 inch of water and the edamame pods in the pot and put the lid on.
  • Put the pot on the stove and turn the heat to high. After you see steam coming out from under the lid, cook the beans for 10 minutes.
  • Carefully drain the beans in the colander, then put them in the bowl. Squeeze the lemon over the pods, sprinkle with the salt, and serve.
