Soy Good for You

Edamame for Snacking
You can usually find frozen soybeans (edamame) at the grocery store. If your local megalomart doesn't carry them: (1) complain loudly and bitterly; (2) visit your local Asian food store.

What you'll need:

Large saucepan or cooking pot
Frozen edamame

  1. Boil about 2 quarts of water in a large pot.
  2. Add the desired amount of edamame (for one person, 1/2 cup to 1 cup should be sufficient as a snack or side dish).
  3. Bring the water back to a boil and cook the beans for 5 minutes.
  4. If you're serving them as a side dish, drain and sprinkle with salt.
  5. If you're snacking on them, drain, rinse with cold water, and sprinkle with salt. Who needs popcorn?
