THE BEN­E­FITS Soy­beans are known for be­ing a po­tent source of pro­tein – on a par with meat – so they’re of­ten pro­cessed into other foods, like milk, tofu or miso soup. They can also be eaten fresh from the pod, when they’re known as edamame beans. ‘Like kid­ney beans, soy­beans also con­tain a nat­u­ral toxin, which is de­stroyed through proper prepa­ra­tion and cook­ing, so fol­low in­struc­tions care­fully when pre­par­ing them at home,’ says Bond.

HOW TO EAT THEM Eat them from the pod, sprin­kled with sea salt.
