A quick, healthy snack bursting with delicious garlic flavor. This simple treat is fun to eat while being packed full of protein, fiber and vitamins, all the things a healthy diet requires.
Have you ever had edamame (ay-duh-MAH-may)? Edamame are young soybeans, still in their pods. Now before you turn your nose up you should know, they have a really wonderful flavor and they are good for you. They happen to be one of my kids favorite snacks, they go nuts over the stuff, which I don’t mind , at least it’s not sugar.
Edamame: To eat, open the pod with your teeth, and squeeze the beans into your mouth. Eating it while it’s still in the pod will give you more of the garlic flavor.
Garlic: Be careful not to over cook the garlic, overcooking tends to make the garlic bitter.
Salt: You can use any kind of salt to season the edamame. I like to use Himalayan Sea Salt, especially with this. The Himalayan sea salt is one of the cleanest salts and it’s a healthier option, plus it really bring out the amazing flavor of the edamame.
- 1 pound edamame, frozen
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium low heat then add garlic.
- Continue cooking over low heat until the garlic starts to become translucent, stirring to avoid the garlic from sticking.
- Turn the heat up to medium-high, add frozen pods and stir to coat the pods in the garlic oil.
- Continue cooking for approximately 5-6 minutes, or until the pods are no longer frozen and starting to brown.
- Remove from heat and sprinkle with salt.
