  • I will give this a try--sounds yummy. I have found edemame (soybeans) in the frozen veggie section of mainstream supermarkets (the frozen ones are sometimes in the pod, sometimes it's available shelled). Edemame is really nutritious--high in protein & fiber! - 5/19/08

  • In Colorado you can find fresh edamame in the prepared salad section of grocery stores. Maries is one brand. Costco also carries a fresh in the pod organic version. - 5/19/08

  • I will try this. Sounds yummy and I love edemame. I have had it fresh in a Japanese restaurant, heated with salt, but I can only find it, even in the health food stores, as a frozen item. Has anyone ever seen it fresh in the pod for sale. - 5/19/08

  • Edemame is a soybean and you shell it and eat the inside bean. It's hard to find in my area but Walmart does carry it pretty regularly. The recipe sounds like it has a lot of potential! - 5/19/08

  • Haven't made this, but curious, is there a way to show caloric value on each item? It really sounds good. I will look for edame, but may have to drive to another town to get them. - 5/19/08

  • I have never made spaghetti squash before. It gave it a different texture. I made it in the evening and ate it the next day for lunch. It held up well and didn't taste runny like some tuna salads I left in the refrigerator in the past. - 1/18/08
