Lemon-Miso Edamame Salad

I’m sure a lot of you, like me, call for a bowl of steamed & salted Edamame as soon as you’re seated at any Japanese restaurant.  It’s one of those things that once you start eating, you can’t stop.  Fortunately for us, unlike Lays and Pringles, you can munch on without guilt because this delightful snack is, in fact, a star legume.  

Incase you’re not so familiar with Edamame, they are immature, green soybeans still in their pods and have naturally sweet & nutty flavour with a slightly crunchy texture.  They are often boiled whole, shelled and eaten as a snack or added to stir fries and salads.

Here are 4 reasons why you should stock up on em’ Edamame and make this refreshingly light salad right now:

  • They’re loaded with low calorie proteins with complete essential amino acids that human bodies can’t manufacture.  This makes them ideal for vegetarians and athletes.
  • They’re packed with vitamin K that can help protect your heart while lowering blood cholesterol level.
  • The isoflavones aid in the maintenance of the bone density
  • They contain antioxidants which strenghtens the body and boosts the immune system.
