edamame nori katsuobushi

Edamame with Bonito and Seaweed

Edamame has become a popular snack all over the world, pairing extremely well with a cold beer or as a side to any Japanese dish. It’s also a great source of protein and vitamin A. They’re fun to eat and share with a group of friends (watch as the empty shells quickly pile up to the side as the evening progresses!) This is a very easy recipe to jazz up the sweet, almost nutty flavor of this bean. Serve it at your next party along with other hors d’oeuvres such as these yummy chicken and pepper miso sliders.

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 6 minutes
  • Total Time: 11 minutes
  • Category: Snack
  • Cuisine: Vegetarian


  • 1 pound edamame (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/4 nori sheet
  • 2 tablespoons bonito flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Follow directions on edamame package on how to cook them (I prefer boiling them a couple of minutes less than what the directions say, as it makes them less mushy). Drain them and let them dry for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Break the nori and add it to a coffee/spice grinder along with the bonito flakes and the salt. Grind the mixture until it almost turns into a powder.
  3. Put the edamame in a mixing bowl and sprinkle the powdered mixture over them. Toss a few times and serve.
