Where do you buy it?
You can find it in with all the other frozen vegetables.
Also available in the produce department when in season.

How do you prepare it?
1. Boil whole bean pods in salted water for about 8 minutes
2. Then place in ice water to blanch and re-salt to taste.

If it is in the pod, squeeze with your fingers and pop the beans right out of their shells and into your mouth. My kids LOVE to shell them and eat them…honest!

What’s it’s nutritional value?
Here’s what you’ll find in a half-cup serving of shelled edamame:

• 120 calories
• 9 grams fiber
• 2.5 grams fat
• 11 grams protein
• 13 grams carbohydrate

Enjoy your edamame!!
