Edamame

Edamame are young soybeans, usually still in the pod, that are soft and edible. A half-cup serving is high in fiber (9 grams) and protein (11 grams) and as with most soy products contain unsaturated fats like plant-based omega-3 fatty acids. Try roasting edamame for a filling snack and an occasional alternative to nuts. You can also use edamame in many dishes as a vegetarian protein option.
