Edamame salad with sesame

This simple edamame salad gets its flavour from sesame oil and freshly toasted sesame seeds. This is a popular salad at the local deli, but you can make it yourself for a fraction of the cost.


  • 1 Tbsp raw sesame seeds
  • 1 carrot
  • 1-500g (1 pound) package frozen shelled edamame (soy beans)
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce


  • Add the sesame seeds to a dry frying pan and set on the stove top on medium-high heat.
  • Continuously shake the pan to keep the sesame seeds moving around. After a couple of minutes, the sesame seeds start to change colour. Watch closely at this point, because they can quickly burn.
  • Once the sesame seeds are a caramel colour, remove them from the pan. (If you leave them there, they will burn, even if you’ve removed the pan from the heat.)
  • In a medium saucepan, cover the frozen edamame with water and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes, drain and set aside.
  • Finely grate the carrot.
  • Combine the sesame oil, soy sauce, and rice vinegar and pour over the edamame.
  • Add in the shredded carrot and sesame seeds to the edamame mixture and mix well.
