Delicious! Edamame are not only tasty but important! I guess not so much when there drenched in garlic and oil but there tasty like that. I like them because there fun to eat and the texture is nutty and creamy.
Edamame are are Japanese green soy beans almost always prepared boiled or steamed. They can be cut from their pods or eaten whole.
Dr. Oz, and I (of course) recommends to eat edamame because of all its health benefits. Edamame is a source of fiber, protein, Vitamin C, iron, Vitamin A, and calcium! They're great! Just like all things, edamame shouldn't be eaten solely but sparingly if you eat a lot of other soy products. Edamame is one of my favorite sources of soy because its natural and can be eaten in different ways.
BLD restaurant on Beverly Blvd.. serves a delicious vegetable salad with edamame beans as the main ingredient. Its not only delicious but beautiful!
Everyone should check this place out, and if you don't like edamame or salad, you will enjoy anything you get there. Pancakes? Yes please!!
BLD's Vegetable Salad ( a little different)
1/2 cup edamame beans, whole
red bell pepper
any nut or seed (cashews, almonds, pine nuts, sunflower seeds) would be good!
Whole Foods ginger vinaigrette dressing
Cut up all ingredients and toss with dressing. Add as much or as little of each ingredient as you like. A pesto dressing would also be great!!!!(i love pesto)
