Snack Series: Garlic Edamame + a Snack Roundup

garlicedamame

I’ll never forget the first time I tried edamame. I didn’t know what it was and started chewing the whole thing (shell & all) at lunch one day with my co-worker. We were at an Asian restaurant and they served edamame as an appetizer.

“Don’t eat the shell!” she cried as I was chomping away. Let’s just say it’s difficult to gracefully discard edamame shells from your mouth.

Despite this experience, I got hooked on edamame as a snack. It’s great with just salt sprinkled on but I like adding garlic powder to give it a little extra flavor.

Garlic Edamame; Recipe or Not

  • 1 cup or so of shelled edamame (find it in the freezer section, thaw according to directions)
  • sprinkle of kosher or sea salt
  • sprinkle of garlic powder, optional

SNACK ROUNDUP!

We had three great reader contributions to this snack series.

Nuts with or without raisins in the mix (Love this suggestion! I keep nuts at my desk as a quick snack or they are great for on-the-go! Healthy fats & protein. *Thumbs up*)

– Dark chocolate covered almonds (I mean… dark chocolate. Enough said. *Makes mental note to get some for desk snack stash*)

– Smoothie: frozen blueberries and strawberries, half a banana, almond milk, a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder, a handful of oats, some chia seeds and a scoop of coconut oil. (Now that’s a power smoothie! Could even be breakfast or a post workout treat. I will be giving this a try!)

Thank you so much to Veronica & Amy for contributing these snacks!
