In leafing through my cookbooks for recipes to try, I frequently find myself put off by ingredients that I don't recognize, or which just sound ooky to me. There are a couple of recipes I've avoided because they call for edamame - general reaction, "edawhat?"

Today, being lazy, I nuked a Healthy Choice dish, boringly called Pineapple Chicken. I'm quite fond of it, mainly for textural reasons: it has water chestnuts and some kind of crunchy legume, looking like giant peas or something.

Of course, looking up the ingredients, I have discovered that the unknown legumes are edamame.

Recipes to try ho!

Do you know that the beans inside the edamame pod are soybeans?
