Edamame is basically a combination of three vegetables: okay (organic sesame seed), shirt (green tea), and mochi (black tea). Although most sesame seeds are not edible, the shiso and mochi are safe to eat and can be substituted for sesame seeds in the making of edamame salad. These three vegetables used in the recipe are combined together, cooked, and served.

Edamame is considered a delicacy in Japan. The leaves are cooked in a salty and vinegar-water solution for around 20 minutes before being served. Although these leaves are not available at local grocery stores, you can substitute your vinegar with apple vinegar if you cannot find these leaves. A little heat is not necessary to cook the leaves; merely mild cooking will suffice. Since edamame salad is a dish that is eaten quickly, the leaves are often tossed immediately after being eaten.

Edamame is also served with kuromame (black beans) and as an appetizer. Kuromame can be added at the end of the meal or arranged along with the edamame salad when it is served. It serves the same purpose as the accompaniment to sushi, helping to enhance the flavor and texture of the dish.

Edamame is also eaten as a light snack. In all probability, it will vanish when you get up from eating it. . . . continued →
