Organic Edamame (nonGMO soybeans) are a great snack full of nutrition. The key is that that must be organic or nonGMO to be healthy or safe. A 2/3 cup serving contains 120 calories, 4 gram of fiber, 10 grams of protein, 10% calcium, 10% iron and 20% Vitamin C! We purchase the frozen version which is most readily available and prepare as stated below. These make a great snack or lunch entree!
Cook edamame in 4 cups of purified boiling water on medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Drain and season with pink Himalayan/Celtic Salt or with the Soy Dipping Sauce below. To eat, split the pod with your fingers to remove the beans. Discard the pods.
1/4 c orange juice or 1/2 fresh squeezed orange
2 T Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (healthy soy alternative)
1 tsp sesame oil
Dash of cayenne pepper
Place all ingredient in a small bowl and drizzle over edamame.
