Apart from eating them directly from the pods, there are lots of different ways that you can use edamame, such as tossing the beans into salads and stir-fries. This recipe is one of my favourite ways to use edamame. You’ll need a pestle and mortar and a blender to make this recipe.

Servings 4


  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 200 g edamame out of the pod
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ clove garlic crushed
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper to season


  • Toss the sesame seeds into a roasting tray and place in a fan oven preheated to 150ºC for about 5 minutes.
  • Using a pestle and mortar, grind the hot sesame seeds until most of them are cracked and ground.
  • Cook the edamame, then drain. If still in the pods, remove by using your fingers to gently squeeze the beans out.
  • Place the cooked edamame beans, ground sesame seeds and the remaining ingredients in a blender and blitz until the texture is nice and creamy.
  • If you think the mixture is too dry, then add a little more olive oil or water.
  • Serve with a selection of vegetale sticks and crackers.
