What Is Mukimame?
Mukimame is another name for edamame beans that have been removed from the pod. You can easily find them in the freezer section at most grocery stores. They can come ready to steam in the bag or ready to boil on the stovetop (my preferred cooking method) in salted water. I love edamame already shelled because it makes them easier to season and eat for a quick and healthy snack. They are full of good nutrition making them a great addition to salads or side dishes for an added nutrient boost. For a half-cup serving of edamame, you get 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, and 5 grams of fat for only 120 calories. Mukimame is a great source of plant-based protein to include in a vegetarian diet.
Mukimame is great simply seasoned with a little coarse salt, but I love them tossed with this homemade seasoned salt. for a delicious healthy snack. They are even delicious cold right out of the refrigerator.
How To Store Cooked Edamame

I love this! I had no idea that edamame shelled was called mukimame. I would have called it shelled edamame 😉
