I’m kind of new to edamame (“edda-ma-may” if you don’t know how its said which I didn’t), which is basically just soybeans that you pop out of the pod and eat in the same way you’d eat peanuts or whatever. I got into them because Costco has very convenient packs of them that make it easy to cook and enjoy. As Chelsey explains here:
I realize this is nothing new but the other day I was listening to the morning radio and a DJ was talking about these great frozen packages of edamame that Costco currently sells. She raved about them, so I rushed there the following Sunday to pick this product up…only to find them SOLD OUT!! Exactly one week later (this last Sunday) I headed back to Costco to again search for this wonder veggie and SCORE! They were back in stock. I picked up a box and headed home. So what makes them special? When I opened the box I found 12 individually wrapped little plastic packages of frozen edamame, exactly 100 calories per pack. I put some slits in the top of one of the packages and popped it in the micro for exactly 3 minutes and out came a pack of perfectly steamed soy bean pods. I threw a little salt on and enjoyed (while sitting in my chair reading Twilight). So convenient! Jason and I are both addicted to these little packages now.
I’m with Chelsey. They are really good, and good for someone like me who doesn’t eat enough veggies.
