Edamame Hummus RecipeCredit: Lisa Guy
Edamame (soybeans) are a phyto-oestrogenic food rich in isoflavones. These are compounds that have a weak oestrogenic effect and bind to oestrogen receptors in the body. Including these foods in your diet can help reduce menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes. Always buy organic soybeans when you can so you know they’re not genetically modified.

- ½ cup shelled edamame
- 1 cup baby spinach
