Crispy Edamame with Garlic Sea Salt

Edamame (green soybeans) is a delightful little bite, easy to prepare and fun to eat.  Edamame is high in protein and has a nutty flavor.

I was recently introduced to this healthy snack by a friend with two small boys (Hunter and Grant).  She served this to her 3-year old as part of his lunch.  Her 6-year old can eat a plate-full of these like they were candy!  She sprinkled my portion with freshly ground garlic sea salt - you can get addicted to these!
 To eat, hold pod by stem end, and slide the individual beans out with your teeth.  Fun!  It was just adorable to see this little 3-year old munching away at these.  They may seem a little intimidating to a little one at first, but once they get started, before you know it, the plate will be filled with empty pods and they will be getting a full serving of protein.

Just microwave one 12 oz. package of frozen edamame for 3 minutes and sprinkle with sea salt.

  4. This is a favorite snack in our house, too...but I've always used just plain sea salt. I'm definitely going to try some garlic sea salt next time...YUM! We also do the same thing with fresh garbanzo beans when we're able to get them.
