    Laura Hey Debbie,

    • Thanks for this remark! Have you attempted coconut aminos as a tamari/soy sauce replacement? It has a fantastic depth of flavour that replaces truly well for soy sauce. When it comes to the edamame, the very best alternatives in regards to texture and flavour would be fresh fava beans, shelled green chickpeas and even routine old green peas.
