What snack do you have when you are drinking?
Snack in Japanese is "Otsumami".
"Edamame" is very popular Otsumami in Japan.
Edamame is green soybeans in the pod, which is just boiled in water together with salt, and served whole.
Edamame is known as a very healthy snack.
Calorie itself is low, but it is nutritious.
(1) vitamin B1 for recovery from tiredness
(2) vitamin E for anti-aging
(3) isoflavone for female hormone
(4) methionine for resolution of alcohol
You wonder why Edamame in the pod is cooked, not without the pod, don't you?
Edamame contains rich vitamin C which is a water solubility.
In order to prevent from melting to water, it is cooked with the pod.
Now, you see how healthy it is.
I hear this healthy snack "Edamame" is getting popular in USA as well.
It is said that Edamame is a good snack for obesity prevention.
Have Edamame with beer tonight!!
