  1. To hard-boil eggs: Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling.
  2. To cook edamame: Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a pot fitted with a steamer basket. Add edamame, cover and steam until the beans are tender, about 2 minutes.
  3. Serve the hard-boiled eggs with the edamame.
