Edamame is a soybean harvested while it is still green, which provides a bean that has a mild sweet flavor. They can be served as a side dish, a snack, or used as an ingredient in salads, soups, casseroles, couscous, rice, and pasta. Not only does it provide a mildly sweet flavor to the dishes it is added to but it is high in protein and provide a tender textured bean that can be added to recipes in place of other beans, such as fava and lima beans. As a vegetable dish, the Edamame bean is served steamed in the shell.
