    Total time:
    Serves: 1
    Ingredients
    • 1/2 cup fresh edamame
    • Sea salt, to taste
    Instructions
    1. Bring a pot of water or lightly salted water to boiling in a large saucepan. Add the pods and return the water to boiling; boil pods about 5 minutes. Do not overcook them or they will get mushy.
    2. Drain the beans and cool them under cold running water or immerse them in ice water to stop the cooking.
    3. Once drained, pat dry and sprinkle with sea salt, to taste.
    4. To shell the beans, gently squeeze the pods with your fingers to release them or have fun simply putting the pods in your mouth and popping the beans out of their skins.

    Notes
    You might find fresh edamame pods at farmer's markets or Asian groceries in late summer. Some home gardeners plant edamame as well. The whole pod is cooked because it's difficult to remove the beans prior to cooking; they slip out easily once the pods are cooked.
