Trader Joe’s Shelled Edamame Review

Trader Joe's Shelled Edamame

We’re not new to Trader Joe’s edamame. We’ve tried their soybeans in a pod and have also enjoyed their soycutash veggie blend. While we enjoyed both options, we also wanted a more basic edamame that was already shelled. Thankfully, the Trader Joe’s Shelled Edamame is yed another edamame option in TJ’s freezer aisle.

There are two ways for you to thaw this frozen edamame out. If you want to avoid any sort of cooking, and if you happen to have a pretty good memory, you can simply leave it in the fridge overnight and let it defrost. If you need to cook it a little more quickly, you can just toss it a pot of boiling salted water. Let it cook for four minutes, rinse it with cold water, and it’ll be ready to eat.

If you’ve had edamame before, there’s nothing surprising here. It’s slightly sweet, with a bit of an earthy flavor, and it has a slightly crunchy texture. While this could serve as a snack, we’d recommend adding it to a meal that needs a little bit of extra protein. It works well in all kinds of dishes, from soups to pasta to stir-fries.

Even though we added quite a bit of salt to the pot before we boiled it, this edamame is pretty plain when you eat it straight out of the package. Trader Joe’s hasn’t added any seasoning here; this is edamame and nothing else. That makes it a very healthy frozen option, but you shouldn’t go into this expecting a fully seasoned dish.

Trader Joe’s Shelled Edamame is a perfect option for edamame fans who don’t want to go through the trouble of shelling soybeans. It’s already cooked and virtually ready to eat. Whether you boil it or let it thaw overnight, it won’t take much effort to add this edamame to whatever you happen to be cookin’.
