Step aside, steamed beans! Grilling gives these protein-packed legumes a charred and slightly smoky flavour that is seriously addictive. Gather the pods by skewering them through the centre or on both ends.

Thread edamame onto soaked wooden or metal skewers; brush with sesame oil.

Place on grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until tender and slightly charred, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from skewers; toss with sesame seeds and salt. Serve warm.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Skip the skewering step and grill the edamame in a grill basket, if you have one.
