Savory Soy: Edamame with Parsley

Soybeans in the pod are one of the world’s easiest, healthiest, and tastiest appetizers or snacks. In Asian restaurants and sushi bars, edamame are served mostly plain, salted, and cold from the pod. Eat them by scraping the beans out of the pod with your teeth. Serve them at home with chopped fresh curly or Italian parsley for a bright, fresh taste.
