Edamame beans remind me of lima beans because of their color and shape. When cooked, lima beans are soft, pasty in texture, and perfect in rice. Edamame could also be cooked in rice as well. Although you can serve the soybeans in different ways, you may not want to overcook them. When crunchy, they are more appetizing, in my opinion. But again, it is a matter of choice.
