The earliest solid reference to the green vegetable dates from the year 1275, when the well-known Japanese monk, who wrote a note thanking a parishioner for the gift of "edamame" he had left at the temple.

Edamame bean is a preparation of immature soybean in the pod commonly found in China, Japan, and Hawaii. The pods are boiled in water together with condiments such as salt, and are served whole.
The dish is most often found in Japanese restaurants and some Chinese restaurants, but it has also found popularity elsewhere as a healthy food item.

The USDA states that edamame beans are "a soybean that can be eaten fresh and are best known as a snack with a nutritional punch." Edamame and all preparations of soybeans are rich in carbohydrates, protein, dietary fiber, omega 3 fatty acids, and micronutrients, particularly folic acid, and vitamin K.
