Whenever you go to an authentic Japanese restaurant, you will be served with these super yummy salted Edamame Soy Beans as the appetizers.
Very easy to prepare. Empty edamame beans in to a pan of boiling water. You should add a little salt to the water for flavour. Simmer for 5 minutes, then drain the edamame well. Serve in a bowl with some crushed sea salt and eat the beans directly from the pod.
The United States Department of Agriculture states that edamame beans are a "soybean snack" with a nutritional punch". Edamame soybeans are rich in protein, dietary fiber, and micronutrients. The distinct cousins of Green Peas, the Edamame beans are a bit harder but less sweeter than the Green Peas.
