One legume that we love to eat is Edamame!!! We make it as a snack, as a side dish for dinner or add it to our salads.  It’s easy and simple to make.

Just a half  a cup gives you a wonderful amount of fiber, protein, added vitamins and minerals to your diet and is:

120 calories

9 grams of fiber

2.5 grams of fat

11 grams of protein

13 grams of carbohydrates

10% of the daily value of Iron

8% of the daily value of Vitamin A

4% of the daily value of Calcium

The thing about edamame that I didn’t know about is all of the health benefits of this tasty vegetable.  I was amazed and wanted to share it with all of you.
