Healthy Edamame Recipes
What you get
Versatile edamame is an excellent plant source of high-quality protein. In addition, edamame delivers fiber, some iron and the phytoestrogens daidizein and genistein, which are thought to have a wide range of health benefits for immune function, cardiac health and menopausal symptoms.
- Shopping Tip
- Look for fresh edamame at farmers’ markets or natural-foods stores. Edamame are most commonly found frozen in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets and natural-foods stores, sold both in and out of the “pods.” One 10-ounce bag of shelled beans contains about 2 cups.
- Storage Tip
- Store fresh and cooked edamame in the refrigerator or freezer.
