These are delicious!
Eat them spreading butter over them and microwaving, or I just eat them with no butter.
They go well in many dishes and I cannot describe the taste - they look like a pea but are not and are now readily available.
but they are natural and don't quite know why they are soy! it is the parts they use from the soy (the waste) to make a lot of soy products I think.....these are a vegetable and pure, if i can use that word.
I have actually just come across the crunchy snack style ones in packets like nuts or chips!!! Yum!!
I would think that they contain plant sterols,(as do oats and many soy products) which help to reduce bad cholesterol! I think that being able to access these wonderful items more easily now is a huge bonus to all of us who have allergies and food problems. I have been able to replace many of the foods which affect me adversely with very interesting and delicious items! The butter and microwave method is so easy and scrumptious!!!
My daughter gave me a packet of them from her freezer, when she moved to Melbourne. I just throw them into my freezer, without reading the cooking instructions on them. I'd never seen nor heard of them before.
Have seen pkts of frozen ones in the supermarket but they are a product of China & so haven't bought them. Also seen them as a snack in pkts, also from China & haven't bought them either for that reason. I know they are the raw soy bean & much is made from them. If I could find a supplier of the fresh product I'd certainly try.
