An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
Edamame is something I discovered far too late in life. I first met this magical snack years ago covered in salt as a pre-meal treat at a japanese steak house. Deee-lish!
I’m now stunned and pumped to learn that it is packed with Fiber, Protein, Thiamin, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Copper, and a very good source of Vitamin K, Folate and Manganese.
1 cup of edamame has about 180 calories, 17 grams of protein (hell-o!), no saturated fat and 8 net carbs, if you’e counting.
So, buy ’em frozen, shelled or in the shell. I keep heaps of bags in the freezer!
Throw them in a pot of boiling water for ~ 5-7 minutes
If you so desire, lightly sea salt them, and enjoy!
Put these magical green gems into salads, pasta sauces, soups or grind ’em up to make dips or humus!
