The soybean is a culinary chameleon that, due to its unique chemical attributes, has managed to work its way into our daily lives in innumerable guises, many of which are delightfully edible: Tofu, soy sauce, miso paste, soybean oil, soy crackers and even dry-roasted versions of the beans themselves.
If picked young and green, the beans are referred to as edamame, and are delicious steamed with a sprinkle of salt.
