A Quick Primer on Edamame

"Eda-what? Say "edda-mom-ay," or go the easy route and call them
"soybeans." Either way, these tasty little gems are full of soy protein,
fiber, vitamin A and calcium. And they're picked before they're fully
ripe for a tender texture and a light, nutty flavor.
Shelled edamame can be added to soups or stir frys- or even mashed
with avocados for a lower fat spin on guacamole. Edamame pods are usually
boiled in salt water, then served as an appetizer. Simply pop out the beans
for a tasty treat."
