The Green Soybeans

Edamame
, ever heard of it? Maybe not, but I'm sure you've seen or tasted it. These are Japanese soybeans that are very nutritious and the name is pronounced Ay-dah-mah-may. They are packed with protein, vitamin A, and iron. Some researchers recently discovered a naturally occuring fat in these green soybeans, that can fight wrinkles caused by sun damage and natural aging. This naturally occuring fat stimulates the production of new collagen, a protein that keeps skin strong and supple. Although researchers still have to figure out exactly how much of these soybeans you would need to fight wrinkles, there's no reason to cut back. Edamame has a lot of fiber and vitamin C.

I love, love, love edamame. I can eat it just boiled. I eat a good amount of this veggie every week.

Yummy. Yummy. Add a little salt, maybe some parmesan.

Soybeans are now available in frozen packets the same as peas. They are also available in dried form but do take lots of soaking overnight followed by boiling for quite a while. For those that enjoy baked beans - they now do Soya baked beans and of course Soya mince and chunks make a substitute in many meat dishes and are a useful addition to keep in the food cupboard ... It's quite early in the morning here so I have probably missed off others in the list but couldn't resist commenting when I saw the little pod!

Edamame and corn soup is a hit in our household.

I can't believe those are soybeans. They look just like ordinary green beans. I want to try it someday.
