These nutty, sweet soybeans are one of my fave veggies. They have actually gone by many names over the years – beer beans, garden soys, and sweet beans, but it’s the Japanese edamame that really stuck.
They are considered nutritional powerhouse due to their high fiber, protein, calcium, iron,vitamin A and C content. They are totally devoid of saturated fat.
I enjoy edamame as a snack (boiled), as well as in various recipes such as salads, stir fries and soups. In its pureed form, they are great as creamy dip for crackers and chips.
