So: Today’s brown bag recipe is another offering from our Vancouver Island hostess, Gail Bishop. Edamame (Japanese green soy beans) can be found in the freezer section of most grocery stores. The beans are tasty and filled with high-quality protein.

Try this edamame salad with teriyaki chicken or salmon. You can also serve it as a vegan entree.
