Frozen Edamame

Frozen Edamame

Skip setting up your steamer basket and prepare frozen edamame pods right in the microwave. Not only does edamame pack a protein punch, but it's also fun to eat and perfect for a pre-meal snack.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time. 

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.


Cook Times


2 cups (160g) 4-5 mins
4 cups (320g) 4-5 mins
6 cups (480g) 6 mins


  1. Evenly spread the edamame in the Anyday dish and cover with the lid (knob lifted). 
  2. Cook in the microwave for the time listed in the table, or until edamame is steaming and hot.

Cooking Tips

  • For the most even cooking, stir halfway through the cook time.
  • Toss with soy sauce and salt for a quick side dish.
