Cooking with Soybean Oil #SoyParaSoy #spon



I've been a lover of soy since I was a kid. My mom absolutely loved anything soy so of course she always asked me to try it. When I finally did, I fell in love. I even used to eat tofu too! Actually, all the women in my family eat soy. I remember seeing my grandmother eat tofu for her breakfast every morning and she's almost eighty years old right now! So I truly believe in the health power of soybeans.

One of my personal favorite snacks is edamame. When I was a teenager, my family used to love to go to this certain restaurant that served edamame as an appetizer and as soon as it got to the table, it was mine! I usually never shared so my parents always had to order one for themselves. Edamame is addicting to me so of course I wanted to come up with a fun recipe to get my daughter to like them too.

Mary loves asian food, especially spring rolls so I decided to try out putting edamame in spring rolls and it turned out wonderful!


Edamame Spring Rolls

Ingridients:

2 Tbsp. garlic, minced
1 cup carrots, thinly sliced or cubed
1 cup edamame, shelled
1 tsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
4 Tbsp. oyster sauce
1/2 cup egg noodles (or other thin noodles) soaked in water for five minutes and drained.
6-8 spring roll or wonton wrappers
water
Soybean oil for heating in skillet

(Never fried with soybean oil before? Soybean oil’s high smoke point (465°F) makes it an excellent option for frying food quickly!)

Directions:
Heat soybean oil in a large skillet. Add minced garlic and simmer for a minute. Add carrots and cook until almost soft. Add edamame, sugar, soy sauce and oyster sauce and bring to a boil. Add the noodles and make sure they are covered in liquid, if not add some more oyster sauce or water. Cover and cook for three or four minutes or until noodles are done. Remove the mixture from the heat. Scoop a couple of table spoons into each wonton wrapper and fold it sealing the edges with water. Fry in soybean oil and serve with sweet chili sauce.

Sweet Chili Sauce

Ingredients:

2 Tbps. Thai chili sauce
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 cup of water
1 tsp white rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. corn starch
1 tsp. salt

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and heat until boiling stirring occasionally.



Did you know that soybeans could already be a beneficial part of your cooking routine? Nearly 100 percent of what's labeled as vegetable oil is actually soybean oil! Just check the ingredients listed on your product label!

Now you get to try out some fun Soybean oil cooking with a $25 Walmart GC!

This is part of a sponsored campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and the United Soybean Board. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
