Salty Edamame Beans

To continue my suggestions for healthy salty snacks I chose to add these nutritious beans that I was served at a mingle party a while back. This is the way I would make them and I am steaming the beans to keep as much nutrients as possible:

Salty Edamame Beans
1bag/450g defrosted edamame beans
olive oil
sea salt

Steam the beans for 2min in a medium pan. Transfer to a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and sea salt

This is a great appetizer to serve all year around for any occasion. It would even do great on a buffet table and as an accompaniment to any Japanese dish. The easiest way to get a hold of these beans is in the freezer section at any Asian store. Some well sorted supermarkets and health food stores store them as well.

HEALTH BENEFITS of Edamame Beans: Edamame beans are a rich source of protein which contributes to maintain muscle mass and weight management. These tiny beans are loaded with a heap of minerals and vitamins, fiber and good fats to help you maintain a good level of health and wellbeing.

If there are any recipes that you would like a healthier twist on or if you have one specific ingredient you would like to get a few recipes ideas on; please add a comment or contact me via email and I will be more than happy to experiment and come up with something delicious, healthy and nourishing for you to enjoy.
