Frozen Shelled Edamame

Sweeter and less starchy than limas, these tender soybeans also pack a nutritional punch.
Everyday Food, May 2012

The Scoop

Once found only in Japanese markets and now widely available in grocery stores, frozen edamame (ed-uh-MAH-may) makes a terrific addition to your rotation of green vegetables. Use the soybeans like you would frozen peas or fresh shell beans in a recipe, or cook and sprinkle with a little salt for a simple snack or lunchbox-friendly side. Each 1/2-cup serving contains 8 grams of protein, plus healthy amounts of vitamins A and C. They're also a good source of iron -- happy news for vegetarians.
