Soybeans are super easy to grow and if you’re in the South, you can still be planting them RIGHT NOW. Just get some soybean seeds, plunk them in the ground about 9 per square foot, and watch them grow. In about ten weeks, once the pods feel full, try this recipe.
Big pile of soybeans (in the pod), big pot of boiling water, big pot of ice water, salt.
- Put soybeans in boiling water until they turn bright green (~3 minutes).
- Immediately plunge into ice water to stop the cooking. (step 1-2 is called ‘blanching’, btw)
- Drain well.
- Toss with salt to taste.
YUMMY!!! And cheap as all get out to boot!
P.S. Goats do not care for edamame.
