Fun Friday with Soy-Zen-Zay
One of Bistro Kids fun fridays took place at Oakhill and invited special guest Ann Panovich to make Edamame bean dip. Ann owns a small family business called Soy-Zen-Zay, and prepared several different bean dips for the kids to enjoy. Now if you are like me, your first question will be……What exactly is Edamame? Edamame are green soybeans which are rich in proteins and Vitamins A, B and C. They are harvested at the peak of ripening right before they reach the “hardening” time. The word Edamame means “Beans or Branches,” and it grows in clusters on bushy branches. In East Asia, the soybean has been used for over two thousand years as a major source of protein.
The students enjoyed tasting the various dips which consisted of Asian Pepper, Garlic, Cucumber and Original. My sources tell me that the kids voted Asian Pepper their favorite. Once again a big Bistro Kids thanks to Ann Panovich and Soy-Zen-Zay for making the day a Fun Friday at Oakhill
