Great for snacking or to serve as a side dish, they are addictive. Edamame is a type of soybean very popular in Asian cuisine. The beans are usually served in different ways. In the United States, they are commonly served as snacks. Incorporating soybeans with pasta or meat is not a bad idea.
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.
