Oh man, I just discovered these, and what was I missing all these years. I probably like them because they are "fattier" than other beans. In any event, do they need to be cooked to make hummus with, or simply thaw and blend?

Other than hummus and eating them as is, warmed up, what else do you do with them?

My aunt makes this three bean salad with them that's really good (although I don't think she's ever put cilantro in it): http://www.bhg.com/recipe/salads/zesty- ... ean-salad/

I use them in recipes that call for frozen limas, or throw them in stir fry when I don't want to fuss with tofu or seitan.

I've never made the edamame corn salad from Vcon but it looks good.

The edamame corn salad IS good! And so quick and easy! It makes a great take-to-work lunch, and it works warm, cold, or at room temperature. I make it all the time. With fresh corn rather than frozen when I can get it.

I do believe they should be cooked prior to eating or using in a recipe (unless the recipe is then cooked). I like them mixed into mac and cheese or any kind of asian type dish - stir fries, noodles, rice, etc. They are good on green salads, or the corn and edamame salad idea is good - I found it a little bland on its own, but maybe some extra chili pepper or sriracha would do the trick.

I put them in stir fry and also in rice dishes like fried rice.

Other than just heating them up and putting salt on them and eating them straight out of a bowl.....I like them in stir fries, in wraps, with noodles, mixed in to salads etc. They're so good!

i really like the edamame pesto pasta dish in AFR. great flavor, wonderfully filling, and unconventional use of edamame.

I eat them almost every day for lunch in a bowl with couscous & chopped sun-dried tomatoes & a glug of sesame oil

when i made the hummus to go on the wraps in the IDI recipe i just thawed them.
