    I will give this a try--sounds yummy. I have found edemame (soybeans) in the frozen veggie section of mainstream supermarkets (the frozen ones are sometimes in the pod, sometimes it's available shelled). Edemame is really nutritious--high in protein & fiber! - 5/19/08

    Great idea for something different. Have used Spaghetti squash, have had tuna salad and Edamame but never all together! Sounds low carb and tastey! - 5/19/08

    In Colorado you can find fresh edamame in the prepared salad section of grocery stores. Maries is one brand. Costco also carries a fresh in the pod organic version. - 5/19/08
