We love these crunchy Edamame, cooked and shelled, of course, but the are also called soy beans. Until I found them bagged in my grocer's freezer section, I enjoyed them on salad bars at restaurants. Now. I buy them ten bags at a time and put them in the freezer. Why? They are a great source of protein, a great snack, listed as a power food on my daily menu, are packed with energy, plus they are simply delicious. Top them on salads, pastas, chips, or... Popcorn!
