Edamame roasted with coriander seeds, red pepper flakes, garlic and salt. Spicy…salty…healthy…finger food.
You guys, look what I bring to you today?
Do you’ll like edamame? I tend to buy them every time I visit Costco. Sophia loves to snack on them. Loaded with fiber, protein, zinc, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, iron, calcium, folate and vitamins-B,C,E and K, it is one of the healthy snacks that is out there. Cooked edamame is delicious out of the package but, sometimes I like to spice it up. What can I say, it is the Indian in me:)
If you are anything like me then I can picture you sitting on the couch watching Rachel Ray and with the pan on your coffee table (on a trivet, of course) and munching on the entire batch of edamame and then skip dinner. Oops…. This is good stuff and do you know the best part? No guilt later
Don’t be alarmed with the amount of red pepper flakes! You’re not gonna eat the outer shell anyways. Isn’t chili peppers suppose to boost your metabolism? YESSS….. there you go – another reason to enjoy these pods. The spice mixture is actually a copy from my Palak paneer knots
This recipe could not be any easier. Toss all ingredients and bake, voila! This is ideal for movie nights at home, appetizer for parties and get-togethers, cocktail hours or just snack anytime or dinner (in my case).
-Fully cooked edamame is available in the refrigerated produce section of y.our grocery store
