Edamame beans, with their vibrant green colour and unique texture, are hot on menus at the moment. They are delicious as a crostini topping, crushed with olive oil, lemon juice and black pepper. Here they become part of a simple salad with chicken, vegetables and a tasty miso dressing. Miso will last in your fridge for months; it’s perfect to pull out for a dressing, a glaze, or to make a substantial soup. If you don’t have soy milk, another milk will be just fine. Toss everything together and serve.
