Consumed in China more than 2,200 years ago, Soybean (Glycine max) is the backbone of Chinese food. Soy source, soy paste, and tofu are all products from soybeans. After being introduced to Japan, the Japanese found a fast way to eat them – simply boil them. After being introduced to Korea, Koreans discovered a slow way to eat them – growing bean sprouts. Asians love to debate about the ownership of these delicious soybean dishes.

Regardless of its history, you may control the quality of soybeans by controlling the source – grow some in your backyard or your balcony. Nutty and milky, after salted and boiled, it can be eaten like beer nuts. It makes a quick and easy side dish.
