We live in a very hectic world so there is no point telling people to eat more fruits and vegetables if you don’t tell them how to do it in a hurry. Adding one or two more servings of vegetables and fruits each day is the fastest way to improve your diet. Pictured above are green Soybeans or Edamame. A tasty, nutritious vegetable does not get much faster than this:
- Buy the Edamame fresh in the shells or shelled. I usually buy them frozen already shelled
- Put in a saucepan with just enough water to cover them and boil on medium heat until tender
- Pour half of the water out of the saucepan, crush a small clove of garlic and throw the whole clove into the saucepan. Add two tablespoons of light Soy Sauce
- Simmer for about another minute then turn the heat off, you can let them sit in the liquid to soak up more flavour until the rest of dinner is ready
Eat them hot, eat them cold and next time I will show you how to turn them into a type of guacamole! Delicious.
