Storing leftovers

Cooked edamame pods can be frozen whole (or shelled) for up to 12 months. To reheat from frozen, simply cook in boiling water for a few minutes.

You can also store it in the fridge for a few days.

Tips and tricks

Notes: The edamame has a slightly hairy pod that cannot be eaten. Inside are usually 2-3 plump soybeans. You can east this at room temperature by pressing the pod with your fingers to remove the seeds.

Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the “Air Fry” function.

Pro Tip: Check your food as it cooks. Each air fryer runs a bit differently. Sometimes airfrying is a trial-and-error process. Check your food as it cooks to learn your air fryer better!  When cooking a new recipe or food items be sure to check your food often to help avoid over/under cooking.
