TIP OF THE DAY: The Joy Of Soy

Want more soy in your life? Edamame (the Japanese word for green soybeans), once found only at Japanese restaurants, are now available almost everywhere, in the frozen vegetable case. (Guess what—the restaurants buy them frozen, too.) Steam them and eat them as a snack or an appetizer Japanese-style, squeezing the beans from the pod into your mouth. Season them by tossing with a bit of sea salt. Or, mix the beans into rice, mashed potatoes, soups and salads. They make attractive garnishes on hors d’oeuvres and other dishes. We love that something this tasty and fun is so good for us.
