Serve up some soy joy! Low-fat, high protein crisp edamame, fiber-rich black beans, and crunchy cabbage get tossed in an Asian vinaigrette for a “superfood” slaw that provides 100% of your daily dose of iron and folate. A great “make-ahead” dish because it gets better as it marinates. Serves 6

- 1 15-ounce can low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
