Edamame — unripened green soybeans fresh from the pod — are among the few plant-based foods that supply complete protein. From the Japanese for “beans on branches,” edamame have long been a staple in Japanese cuisine but were largely unfamiliar to American consumers until the closing decades of the 20th century. Boiled or steamed in their pods and then shelled, edamame make a tasty vegetable side dish; when dried, they’re a healthy and crunchy snack. Source: Health Effects of Edamame Soybeans
