Edamame (Soy Bean)

  • Edamame (枝豆), pronounced eh-DAH-ma-meh in Japanese (ay-duh-MAH-may in English), is most popularly known as the little snack that is brought to you when you sit down to a table at a Japanese restaurant.

    They are edible young soybeans that are harvested and picked before they have ripened. In Japanese, eda 枝 means ‘stems’ and mame 豆 means ‘beans’, as they are often sold while still encased in pods with the stems attached.
