Maybe I've been living in a hole but I just discovered edamame and am in love, if one can love a vegetable. These are great for snacking, are healthy and they taste good too.

If you've been living in a hole, you left me behind in it.

What is edamame? I've never heard of it. I'm always on the lookout for a fun, new veggie!

You can find it in the frozen veggie section. It's pods of soybeans. Just boil them and eat...great snacking.

I've seen them, but have never tried them. They look like they would taste "green" if you know what I mean. Do you season them?

I don't believe edamame is a complete protein, however they are a very significant source of protein. They are, indeed soybeans, and in a much more native form than tofu. They taste similar to, but better than IMHO, the little beans inside green beans.

I also love edamame which are just soybeans. My husband thought they were snap peas, they're similiar... I can't find them in my "regular" grocery store but they have them in the co-op I shop at. I don't like a lot of "natural" or "health" foods but I lOVE these!! Nuke for a few minutes, throw some salt on them and you've got a very healthy and tasty snack food!!

I stand corrected. However, the link you've provided actually does have inaccurate information. It says, "Soy protein is the only plant protein that contains all 8 essential amino acids and is considered a complete protein." Rather, there is at least one other: Quinoa.

Bicker you are RIGHT!!! I am excited to see someone else who knows of this "amazing grain", as some folks call it. I like to mix it in w/ other cereals of mine. It is a good addition to granola, and is rather light, so it can be added to many things without overwhelming them. Thank you for that info...
Cheers!
