Edamame are immature soy beans, still in the pod. Try them boiled and tossed with some salt and chopped dill fonds for a great side dish.  Dill fonds are the wispy, fern-like “leaves” on the plant – they have a sweet taste and are a great way to add flavor to a dish.

Ingredients:

2 tsp. coarse salt, such as kosher, plus more for salting the water
12 ounces edamame (fresh soybeans) in the pod, either fresh or frozen
1 rounded tablespoon chopped fresh dill fronds
6 cups fresh pea shoots

Directions:
  1. Bring 8 cups (2 quarts) of water to a boil in a large saucepan.
  2. Add a big pinch of coarse salt and then the edamame beans.
  3. Boil until the beans turn bright green, 1 minute.
  4. Drain into a colander, shaking to remove excess water.
  5. Let the beans cool for 2 minutes, and then toss with the salt and dill, tossing to coat.
  6. Add the pea shoots, toss briefly and serve immediately with a small dish for collecting the shells.
