Baby soya beans served either in their pods or shelled. They look like small broad beans, but have a sweet taste and slightly crispier texture.
Often served in Japanese restaurants, whole soya pods are boiled until softened, then cooled and served sprinkled with sea salt. Frozen soya bean pods are now widely available - simply boil for a couple of minutes then drain and serve as you would peas. They are firm, a little crunchy and slightly sweet to taste, try adding them to stir fries, risottos and salad recipes. Or in this delicious tuna steak recipe.
