Ask the Nutritionist: Edamame looks like a vegetable, has meat-like qualities
Mar 21, 2013 11:57 AM
Edamame are fresh (not dried) green soybeans. Although smaller than lima beans, they have a buttery, nutty flavor much like baby limas. Sometimes you can get them fresh in the grocery produce section, though usually it's easier to find them in frozen form, often with other frozen vegetables or in a natural foods section.
