Edamame are soybeans in a pod that are found in the cuisine of China, Japan, Korea and Hawaii. They are usually boiled or steamed and served with salt. I took them to another level, and I promise you will never eat them with just salt ever again!
This soup is so hearty and great if you are having a crowd on a cold day. I put regular dried black beans in and they were fully cooked within 2 hours.
