Edamame: A Soybean That's Picked When Green
(NAPSA) - You don't have to be experienced in healthy eating to enjoy the benefits of a specialty soybean that's picked when it's green. Edamame (pronounced ed-ah-MAH-may) is a soybean that's harvested when the bean is 80 to 90 percent mature.
How much soy should you incorporate into your diet? The Food and Drug Administration states that "25 grams of soy protein a day as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease."
In a large pot of boiling salted water cook edamame for about 3 minutes. Refresh in cold water and pat dry. Transfer to a serving bowl.
In a bowl combine soy sauce, vinegar, mirin, ginger and scallions. Pour dressing over edamame and stir to coat. Drizzle with sesame oil and serve.
Toss edamame beans with all remaining ingredients over medium heat for about one minute.
If you don't have all of the herbs called for, use more of the ones you do have. Even one fresh herb adds delightful flavor to edamame. Try to avoid using dried herbs in this recipe.
