The word edamame first appears in Japan in 1275. A monk wrote a thank you note for these immature soybeans he received as a gift. It wasn’t until 600-700 years later that these green pods made their way to the United States. The word edamame didn’t become a word in the Merriam-Webster dictionary until 2008. I don’t care if they’re immature though, they taste good. And all you need to make them is a blender or food processor, and a small pot or wok.
