Arkansas Soybean Growers Celebrate National Soyfoods Month With Three Fold Traditional recipes full of soy teach Arkansans the impact of the soybean industry

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (March 28, 2018) – One of Little Rock’s top eateries and advocates for Arkansas soybean growers, Three Fold Noodles + Dumpling, Co. returns to the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board’s Kitchen | Fields Table Tour as April’s featured restaurant.

Planted in the heart of Downtown Little Rock, Three Fold boasts food with roots. Emigrating from China, owner and executive chef Lisa Zhang’s menu features handmade dumplings and noodles cooked in traditional Chinese style. Highlighting the importance of soybeans to the food industry and Chinese cuisine, Three Fold is featuring a Spring favorite, Hong Shao Beef Noodle Soup. Named for the red braising cooking process – hong shao – this seasonal noodle soup features soy-fed beef in a rich, seasoned broth, with noodles and vegetables. While tofu and edamame are popular soyfood options, Three Fold is helping the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board show Arkansans the versatility of this comodity.

“Soy is one of the most frequently used and healthiest ingredients in Chinese cooking for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike,” Zhang said. “We’re proud to be a part of the Kitchen | Fields Table Tour again this year and are happy to promote people’s awareness of soy, which is utilized in all of our main dishes and sauces.”

Partnering exclusively with Arkansas-owned restaurants around the state, the Kitchen | Fields Table Tour uses the power of food to feed Arkansas’s hunger for knowledge, teaching about the impact consumers have on the state’s $2 billion soybean industry. Since launching in 2015, the Kitchen | Fields Table Tour takes off in January and runs through June, featuring a partner restaurant’s uniquely mouth-watering take on soybeans from cheesecake to beef noodle soup.

  • The Butcher Shop, Little Rock | January
  • The Hive, Bentonville | February
  • Postmasters Grill, Camden | March

As the Kitchen | Fields Table Tour travels the state, the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board encourages Arkansans and all who walk through partner restaurants’ doors to eat more soy foods and soy-fed protein, such as pork, beef, turkey and chicken. Professional and self-proclaimed foodies can find more information on the program, including facts about our soybean industry, by visiting TheMiracleBean.com.
