Soybeans are made into a variety of foods but before they’re processed into various products, they’re known as edamame. Edamame is immature soybeans that come in green pods. Popular in Asia, edamame has made its way into Western culture as a delicious snack.
Rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals, edamame doesn’t raise your blood sugar and is known to lower cholesterol. After cooking your edamame, try seasoning it with a little garlic salt and red pepper flakes.
