You've undoubtedly tried edamame, soybeans which are often boiled and served with a touch of salt at izakayas (Japanese pubs). Although green in color, edamame are actually immature soybeans which typically turn yellow or black when fully ripe. A rarer type of soybean is aomame {lit. “blue bean”) which remains green even when ripe. Larger than regular soybeans, they are lower in fat and higher in sugar making them sweeter, particularly when steamed. Aomame are hard to find given the time and labor required to cultivate and harvest them.

Here, the sweet, nutty, buttery flavors of aomame are combined with the mellow tasting “Yumemi Salt" made from seawater from the Seto Inland Sea and a simple, gentle tasting dashi (broth) made from konbu (kelp) andmaguro (tuna) bushi.
