To eat cooked edamame plain, squeeze the edge of the pod between your thumb and forefinger. This will allow the whole bean to pop out of the pod into your mouth. Discard empty pods. Alternatively, squeeze the beans out of the pods and add them to a small side salad for a mid-afternoon snack.

How do I know when to pick edamame?

Harvest pods in the evening for best flavor. Another clue that pods are ready to harvest is that some of the leaves shift from bright green to a light yellow-green. Don't wait until all plants in a row have yellow leaves, though; that's too late. Begin harvesting as soon as you see yellow-tinted leaves on a few plants.

Soy, in its natural form, is an excellent source of protein and fiber. Edamame is very easy to grow, and is easily harvested and stored. I never buy non-organic soy and edamame, as it is the top 2 genetically modified foods in the world (second to corn, and right ahead of sugar beets).
