Alkalising Recipe of the Week – Edamame and Tofu Salad
Check out this Asian inspired warm salad with edamame beans. If you haven’t used edamame before in your cooking you don’t know what you are missing out on. These tasty little beans are immature soy beans that are picked before they harden. They are an excellent source of fibre, protein plus vitamins and minerals, so are the perfect addition to any salad.
