I just love finger food and I have to say that the smooth, salty and tangy taste of this great snack makes me the happiest! And now I know why... It might just be the ultimate snack for women!
Edamame or in other words, soybeans in pods, are not only rich in antioxidants, which strengthen your immune system, reduce the risk of cancer and neurogenerative diseases, they also contain a considerable amount of phytoestrogen, primarily isoflavones that protect from osteoporosis while contributing to prevent and ease menopausal symptoms. Yeah!
Ready in 2 minutes: boil the frozen edamame pods at high temperature for two minutes, strain and sprinkle them with fresh lime or lemon juice, and Kosher salt (or fleur de sel—hand-harvested sea salt). They are 100% non-fat, rich in proteins and so good for you, once you’ve tasted them, you’ll want to have them all the time.
Edamame used to be only available in Japanese specialty stores but now, they can be found in the frozen department of your favourite grocery store.
