      Edamame Pasta with Spicy Soy Sauce

      edamame pasta recipes

      Edamame pasta has so much protein and fiber compared to regular pasta, it’s almost hard to believe. It’s a great way to get in some plant-based protein while enjoying a pasta dish. Honestly, it’s a win-win for everyone. 

      What is edamame?

      Edamame beans are immature or young soybeans. They differ from soybeans, which are a pale beige color, more resembling white beans. Edamame is a light green color, similar to lima beans.

      These green beans are popular in East Asia and appear in many dishes. They are high in protein, fiber and many micronutrients. Overall, they are a great source of plant-based protein. 

      Origins

      Edamame is a Japanese word meaning “bean branch”. This is likely because edamame was once sold by street vendors still on the branch, making it a great snack on the go. 

      Despite having a long history in Japan, their origins go back to China, at least 5,000 years ago. The reason they are associated with Japanese cuisine is because of their prevalence in the Japanese diet.

      Nutrition

      One cup of edamame beans contains 188 calories, 14 grams of carbohydrates, 8 grams of fat and 19 grams of protein. This makes edamame a wonderful plant-based protein source.

      Along with this, edamame contains 8 grams of fiber and only 1 gram of saturated fat. Due to it being high in fiber and low in saturated fat, it’s a great food for heart health.

      As for the vitamins and minerals, it’s a great source of vitamin B1, B2, folate, vitamin K, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. 

      Overall, edamame is a nutrient powerhouse. It’s a great source of protein and fiber, low in saturated fat and very micronutrient dense. Everyone should be eating edamame, unless you are allergic to soy of course!

      The above nutrition information was derived from cronometer.com using the entry “Edamame Beans” from the NCC database. 

      Where to buy

      You should be able to find edamame at your local grocery store, either fresh or frozen. If you can’t find them at your local grocery store, try your local Asian grocery store.

      As for edamame pasta, that may be more difficult. Most large grocery store chains carry edamame pasta. But if you can’t find it, you can always try online. Here are a few options:
