Edamame

Edamame
If you’re on a detox, cutting out sugar or trying to loose weight, the shift to healthy eating can often leave you wondering what to snack on.

Nuts are great but can be really hard to consumer in moderation. Given the vast majority of the population needs to consume more vegetables, edamame – or soy beans, are a fantastic option as they’re quick to cook and loaded with nutrition.

Soy beans are one of the richest sources of protein in the plant world and contain all 8 essential amino acids – making them an excellent choice for vegetarians. They’re high in folate, vitamin K and are a good source of essential fatty acids and fibre.

Keep them in the freezer as a go-to when you’re craving a snack or eat them like the Japanese do, before a meal.

Ingredients

  • 125g/4.5 oz/1.5 cups frozen edamame
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt flakes (such as Maldon) optional

Method

  1. Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil. Add the frozen edamame and cook until they all float to the top of the water – this should take around 3.5 – 4 minutes
  2. Drain and if using salt sprinkle the whole edamame with the salt flakes then eat immediately or reserve as a snack for later. Note that I eat very few of the salt flakes find they impart a good flavour
  3. You can also experiment with chilli flakes if you like something a little hot and spicy
