Over the next few years I heard things here and there about the benefits of having this superfood in your diet and thought, "yeah, I tried, I REALLY TRIED, but I can't eat that stuff."
So, when my friend Maren mentioned to me that Costco carries portioned microwave ready Edamame, that her KIDS love, I scoffed. She is a healthy rockstar of a Mom who seems to know what tastes good though, as evidenced by the oreo truffles she created and shared at our recent neighborhood Bake-Off! Turns out I happened upon said product last time I was there and thought, well the return policy here is awesome...I'll give it another try.
I'm so glad I did! This stuff comes in the shell (helps maintain a nice texture), in a microwave safe container. All you have to do is stab a hole in the top, nuke it for 3 minutes, a little salt on top, and YUM! They taste nutty and my kids think they're like lima beans. They love to pull the edamame from the shells (that part is inedible). They ate a ton! And now I have another veggie to add to Gunnar's list that he'll actually eat. :) If you live near a Costco check it out in the freezer section.
