Microwave Garlic Edamame Recipe


This quick, easy recipe lets you start with frozen edamame, add in some minced garlic, and have a healthy, delicious meal in minutes!

Garlic Edamame Recipe

1 16oz bag frozen edamame
4 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ginger

Cook the frozen edamame per the instructions on the package, including resting time if necessary. Mince the garlic into small pieces. It depends on how much you love garlic, as to how large or small the pieces should be. I tend to like healthy chunks of garlic in my food :)

When the edamame is ready, mix in the garlic, olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and ginger. Mix thoroughly until the edamame is all coated.

Makes six 1/2 cup servings.

This is fine to eat on its own, as a side dish to a lean piece of meat, as a topping on a salad, or mixed in with tuna fish! There are a variety of ways to incorporate this easy dish into your weekly menu plan.

About the Dish
Edamame are soybean beans and they're delightfully good for you. They have only 5g net carbs per serving, and they also give you 4g of fiber per serving. They're great for supplying vitamin C and vitamin A as well.

An entire head of garlic has less than 1g of carbs, so since we're eating less than 1 clove per serving here, I think we can discount that. So a serving of this is about 5g of net carbs. Plus you get all the cholesterol-lowering benefits of eating the garlic. Garlic also chelates mercury out of your system!

Alternate Ideas
To liven this up, try experimenting with the oils you use. Try it with walnut oil or sesame oil. Each one will give the dish a different flavor profile!

Remember to check that your oils are fresh. Ancient oils can go rancid. Many oils - especially those in clear containers - last only six months before they start to turn. It's best to stay healthy with fresh foods! Labeling your oils with a sharpie when you bring them home from the store is a great way to remember if they're past their expiration date.
