Spotlight on: Edamame beans


Finally a snack for those of us with a savoury tooth that doesn’t taste disgusting!

This one might be a bit of a cheat as they are more a Japanese or Thai thing than Korean, but I can certainly buy these at the Korean supermarket, so I’m counting them 😛

What are they?

Immature soya beans still in the pod. I buy mine frozen, then boil them in very salty water for ten minutes. Voila! I can sit in front of the TV popping them out of the pod straight into my mouth and eating them.

They taste very similar to our broad beans, with a slightly different aftertaste and are currently my snack food of choice.

Have you had Edamame beans? What did you think of them?
