Edamame ( say “ed-duh-mah-may“) are immature soy beans and are a popular Japanese snack. They are often steamed and eaten by hand after pinching them out of the pod.


Frozen broad beans

800 g, edamame variety

Rice wine vinegar

2 tbs

Wasabi paste

30 g, (1½ tbs)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place beans in a large bowl and cover with hot water. Set aside for 5 minutes. Drain. Squeeze beans from pods and place in a large bowl (discard pods).
  3. Add vinegar and wasabi to bowl and toss to coat. Spread beans over prepared tray and season with salt.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove and discard baking paper, leaving beans on unlined baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes or until browned and slightly crisp. Cool on tray. Serve.
