Soybeans are small, oval shaped, light tan in colour, and better known in processed form in foods such as soy milk, tofu, tempeh and soy sauce than as an actual bean!
This Asian beauty comes originally from China, and is a member of the pea family. The great secret about these beans is that they are an amazing source of high-quality protein... and PS: they have a gorgeous nutty flavour! They contain all the essential amino acids, similar to those found in meat. They are fantastic in soups, stews, casseroles and salads!
