Spicy Edamame

Need an easy & healthy snack that’s flavorful & satrifying?! Try these Spicy Edamame. They come together in under 5 minutes and only SIX ingredients. WARNING It’s SO addicting, you will keep wanting more. Edamame is filled with protein so I’m okay with having a lot without feeling guilty. Serve this as an appetizer with Hakka Noodles, Curry Ramen Noodles, Schezwan Garlic Noodles, Wonton Soup.

We buy a huge bag of frozen edamame from costco, the kids love it as well. We don’t add spice to it for the kids only salt, garlic powder, and lemon juice. I also buy shelled edamame from the freezer section at Trader Joe’s I use it in a lot of the kids meals. It’s a great way to add protein to their meals. I hope you guys enjoy this simple & guilt free snack as much as we do in our family. If you try it don’t forget to tag me @Zheelicious, I can’t wait to see your wonderful creation.

Stay happy, stay hungry!
