Looking for a quick snack that’s both tasty & healthy? Try this edamame recipe. It’s quick, simple and delicious!

Plus, each 1/2 cup serving is under 150 calories with 8 grams of protein & 4 grams of fiber, low in sodium and gluten free.

Pretty sweet, huh?

I’ll be honest, I’m not one for counting calories. I believe it’s more important to focus on what I eat to be healthy, low-glycemic and anti-inflammatory (which this snack is). However, I know there are plenty of gals out there wanting to keep things “low-cal” so that is really the only reason I mentioned this snack is under 150 calories.

Travel Tip:  Toss some frozen edamame in a container to put in your lunch bag or purse. Later that day they will have thawed out and be ready-to-eat. Edamame doesn’t require a recipe – it’s great naked 😉  But for an extra punch of flavor I really suggest you try my recipe!

 

Garlic Edamame

  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
  • 2-3 Tbsp olive oil
  • sea salt to taste
  • ground pepper to taste

Bring 2 cups of salted water to a boil. Add frozen edamame and boil for 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile, combine olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl. Drain edamame and add to bowl. Toss to evenly coat. Serve warm, room temperature or chilled. Enjoy!

Makes 2 servings.

Refrigerate leftovers in an air-tight glass container up to 2 days.

 

Cheers!
