Roasted Edamame

This is a great snack as it is high in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber, says Brennecke. Fiber actually "traps" carbohydrates and slows their digestion and absorption, which helps prevent blood sugar levels from spiking throughout the day. (Translation: It keeps you from reaching for unhealthy, sugar-filled snacks for a quick pick-me-up). 

Ingredients: 
1 pound frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans) 
1/2 teaspoon sea salt 
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
1 1/2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil 

Prep:
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly spray a baking sheet with canola oil spray.
2. Thaw and drain the edamame in a colander. Pat dry. 
3. Toss the edamame, salt, pepper, and olive oil in a large bowl. Spread the edamame evenly on the baking sheet and roast for 50 to 60 minutes, or until golden. 

Each serving contains: 
130 calories 
10 g carbohydrate 
7 g fat 
11 g protein 
129 mg sodium 
4 g fiber

I have never heard of edamame until a week or so ago.  Doesn't look like something I want to try.  I can't wait to see what else you have in this series!
