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:
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.
