Sometimes the simplest things are the most delicious. This is an addictive, healthy, fun and easy way to enjoy green on a plate. Edamame are the young, soft, edible soybeans found inside the pod that eventually grow into the dry, hard beans used to make tofu and soy milk. A fabulous protein and fiber packed lip smacking snack, try serving this instead of popcorn during family movie night--after some initial grumbling, these little green bites just may turn into the favorite Netflix companion.
Edamame is Japanese for "beans on a branch.” These green soybeans have a nutty, sweet flavor and creamy yet slightly crunchy texture.
