Maybe you’ve heard about the health benefits of soy. It’s a protein-packed nutrition bomb, loaded with flavonoids that may help reduce the incidence of cancers and rich in fiber and other vitamin and minerals. But tofu just sounds really unappealing. Try some edamame! This is the whole soybean, which comes in pods similar to peas, with a firm texture that makes a great addition to salads, pastas, casseroles or even just on its own.
This recipe makes perfect use of fresh locally grown corn and squash. It is packed with nutrition and flavor! To save time use canned butter beans or baby lima beans, drain and rinsed before use. Edamame work well in this recipe also!
