Edamame with Sriracha Sea salt and Meyer Lemon is simple, delicious, and an easy snack, but I have served this number of times as a side dish as well.
Lately, I’ve reached more and more for healthier option snacks, and edamame is really on top of the list. Not only that, I love it, but my kids adore soybeans, especially in the pods. I guess it’s more fun to pop them out of their pods. If you never have them, please do, of course, if your diet permits it or you are not allergic.
They are just wonderful to snack on, and even you can pack them for school or work.
The edamame is immature green pea pods of the soybean plant. It is naturally gluten-free and low calorie, contains no cholesterol, and is a fantastic protein, iron, and calcium source.
It is an essential source of protein for those who pursue a plant-based diet.
Edamame contains manganese, vitamin K, potassium, and magnesium. Manganese helps in building strong bones, while vitamin K plays a role in adding to bone density.
Both potassium and magnesium contribute to preventing the onset of osteoporosis. Also, soybeans contain antioxidants that help the body rid itself of radicals and toxins.
This is also useful in strengthening the body’s immunity.
Those are just a few facts about it.
I will explain how my favorite way to prepare them.
