Edemame – healthiest snack in the world?

I love to make this EASY snack when I am hungry and in between meals!

It is supersimple!

You need frozen edemame/soy beans that you can find in the freezer in your supermarket (or in asian supermarkets in your neighborhood) . It is preferred to buy organic and non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism). And I prefer soy beans in pod.

Seapoint farms edemame

(I buy from Seapoint farms)

You boil them for 4 minutes in a pan with water, drain and add some seasalt.

Edemame or soy beans, are good for protein and are very healthy and filling snacks for  when you are hungry but don’t really need a whole meal. But they are also tasty in salads, soups and even mashed!

    Unfermented Soy beans deplete the body of iodine which is needed for a healthy thyroid, controller of the metabolic rate and so should be avoided. The Japanese have known this for over 60 years. Thus they have learnt to ferment soy which reduces the iodine depleting affect and increases the release of protein and B vitamins. So miso and tempeh are the better options.

    I totally agree, Lonneke! Edemame is such a great snack. I moved 2 years ago from Belgium to Australia. You can find them here in Asian shops for $5…it’s fantastic :)
