I bought a frozen bag of this by mistake. I thought I was buying sugar snap peas. Now I do not know what to do with it.

Any suggestions? The only vegetarian cookbooks I have were written by Linda McCartney and she seems to be more mainstream than some of the recipes I have seen on your blogs.

I've read about growing endame under Diggin' in the Earth, but how do I cook it? them? whatever.

Boil them and toss them with sea salt in a bowl- you eat the beans out of the pods- they are soy beans and really yummy. HTH.

They are like fresh peas? You do not eat the pods?
Well, I will try this tomorrow.

I've had a bag in my freezer for month because I don't know what to do with them either.......so....if I boil them, do I then remove the pods first? Or do you open each pod as you eat them to remove the beans? It seems like a pain...although I'm sure they're yummy.

You kind of suck the edamame out of the pod. They are delicious!

Well, I steamed the pods in my rice cooker (with the basket in) then I shucked the pods off all at once and ate them over mashed butternut squash with a heap of brown rice.

Veddy good for Sunday dinner!

However when I told a friend, she said I shouldn't eat the soy because it makes estrogen and if you are a breast cancer survivor (5 years) like me
that's not a good thing since it works against the Tamoxifen.

I stopped with the Tamoixifen after 4.5 years, does this mean I cannot eat any soy foods for the rest of my life?
I liked the edamame. even if I have trouble spelling it!

in Japan it`s a snack with beer. just boil them and salt them and then just pop them out of the pods into your mouth. I tried to eat the pods in the early days and they were just too much to chew.

I think you couldput them in salads or rice if you wanted to.

eda mame. mame means BEAN in japanese. (pronounced ma-may.)

I went out with a friend who told me she sees them in sushi after they roll them around in wasabi. She also told me about a salad crunchie she buys called Snappees that are very delicious like a chip only made from a pea.

I could be spelling this wrong.
My DH likes lots of crunch so I think I'll take your advice, mad cow,and add them to fried rice!

What a cute name Mad Cow. I wish I thought of that. Just the name alone makes you want to be a veg*n .

I love edamame. We eat them as suggested above. Boiled, tossed with salt, then popped in my mouth.

If you don't want to eat them out of the pod, you can also buy them already de-podded, also frozen. I've accidentally bought that kind more than once!

I am so glad I asked about edamame. You were all very helpful. I loved them over the butternut squash with the brown rice on the side.

I may not be hungry again until Thanksgiving

Have a great day on Thursday everyone.
We are driving to Pennsylvania wednesday morning.
