To tie to the Japanese theme, Minoo made an Edamame Dip at the South Arm Community Kitchen. Edamame beans are soybean that can be eaten fresh. The preparation for edamame is usually boiled in salted water or steamed.
Edamame is rich in carbohydrates, protein, dietary fiber, omega fatty acidas and micronutrients like folic acid, manganese and vitamin K.
