Edamame – An Unfamiliar Bean With A Nutrition Punch

Edamame is a vegetable you may not be familiar with. This vegetable looks like a lima bean, but is sweeter in flavor. This bean provides a “complete” protein and have as much fiber as four slices of whole wheat bread. This bean provides vitamins A, B, and C and disease-fighting isoflavones.
Edamame is a fresh soybean, bigger and sweeter than the soybeans grown in fields through Wisconsin and the Midwest. It is a specialty variety of soybeans harvested in the green stage.
This bean can be found in the frozen vegetable section at the grocery store or a health food stores.
