TRY THIS DELICIOUS AND EASY EDAMAME RECIPE AT HOME

Ingredients

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1 (1-pound) bag frozen edamame, in the pod (green soy beans)

Garlic Edamame

Directions

Heat the salt, chili powder, and pepper flakes in a small dry skillet over medium heat, stirring until hot and aromatic, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and crumble in the oregano.

Boil the edamame pods in salted water until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain in a colander and pat dry. Toss the edamame pods with the chili-salt and serve warm.

#FACTS 1/2 cup of edamame gives you a bunch of fiber: 9 grams, about the same amount you’ll find in 4 slices of whole-wheat bread or 4 cups of steamed zucchini. It has almost as much protein as it does carbohydrate. It contains around 10% of the Daily Value for two key antioxidantsvitamins C and A. And for a plant food, it’s quite high in iron; it has about as much as a 4-ounce roasted chicken breast.
