How to Cook Sweet Whole Soy Beans (Edamame)

This is a good simple way to make sweeter edamame, try it.

Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 2-3 Prep: 5 min Cook: 5 min

Ingredients

Frozen whole edamame 200-250g
Salt (for boiling) 30g
Sugar (for boiling) 30g
Hot water 1.5 litres
Salt (for seasoning) 2-3 pinches

Method

1
This is the pack I bought in a Japanese supermarket in London, it's made in China. It says to boil for 6-7 minutes before washing in cold water - I ignored this!
2
Put 30g each salt & sugar in 1.5 litres hot water andbring to the boil. Add the frozen whole edamame for 2-3 minutes. For a slightly crunchier finish, I would suggest 2 minutes is enough.
3
Drain in a colander and allow to cool slightly. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with good salt, I used Maldon salt.

Tips & Note

●It sounds crazy to add sugar to make sweet edamame, but the beans themselves have sugar in them but it escapes while boiling, so I'm just returning the beans to their natural state. I'm not really adding it! 2% sugar is the right amount, any more and you can really taste it as a bit too much
●The salt for seasoning should be the best you can get. I love Maldon salt from Essex that contains a lot of minerals
