Less is more! Stick to small portions of the Good Old Soys — Miso, Natto, Tempeh and unpasteurized Shoyu. Old -fashioned fermenting makes these foods nutritious, delicious and healthful. Few people are inclined to eat these foods to excess. And a whole bowl only contains about a teaspoon or two of miso.
Azure Market Organics soybeans are round, pea-sized, and creamy yellow, with a nutty flavor and firm texture. They’re sometimes called the “meat of the soil” because they have the highest protein content of any bean—one cup of soybeans provides 67.9 grams of protein, or 136% of the daily value! Plus, they’re one of the few plant-based complete sources of protein, meaning they provide all nine essential amino acids (amino acids which the human body cannot synthesize).
Just to sweeten the deal, our organic soybeans are also a fantastic source of iron, calcium, fiber, and potassium, phosphorus, fat, lecithin, and vitamins A, B, and E. In fact, one cup of soybeans provides over 50% of the daily value for calcium, fiber, and potassium, and a whopping 152% of the daily value for iron! Talk about a nutritional powerhouse!
Soybeans are super versatile and used in tons of dishes, including tofu, soymilk, tempeh, fermented bean paste, and nattō, a dish made from whole fermented soybeans. They take a long time to cook—between 3 and 3 ½ hours—even after presoaking, but their versatility and high nutritional value make them well worth the wait! They can also be sprouted, and will put on hearty roots if a brick or weight is placed on them while sprouting.
