Strawberry & Sea Salt Garlic Edamame


Jump to Recipe
We all need our go-to snack when juggling life.  Strawberry & Edamame happens to be mine as it is super easy to make and low carb friendly.  My kids love strawberries, so we always have a box in the fridge.  For our edamame, we get the frozen ones at Costco.  These are really convenient as they are individually bagged into 2 serving sizes and you just need to pop them in the microwave to heat them up.  I am sure other locations have similar edamame packaging as well.

I am also aware that many keto people avoid soybeans, however, I do not see where this notion comes from.  The serving size I usually consume (about 4oz) has 3.5g of net carbs along with 6g of protein and many minerals, which I do not think is very high for something that is quite filling.   However, everyone does have their own interpretation of where the keto line is, so this may or may not work for you.

Now, let’s get started!

Prepping Time 1M

Cook Time 3M

Total Time 4M

Net Carb/Serv ~6g

Servings 1

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Bag of Edamame (about 4oz)
  • 2-3 Strawberries
  • Garlic Powder to Taste
  • Sea Salt to Taste

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) Place edamame in a microwave for 1 minute with bag intact.

3) Meanwhile, cut strawberries.  There are many ways to do this, but the way I do it is cut the top off and place the flat portion on a cutting board.  Then make slices vertically.  Plate when completed.

4) Once microwave is done, flip bag and microwave for 1-1.5 minutes (depends on your wattage).

5) Once edamame is done, pout half the bag into a mixing bowl and season with garlic powder and salt.  Toss and plate.

Enjoy your quick snack to hold you off until dinnertime!  If you are looking for other quick snack ideas, be sure to check out our Recipe Index with over 150+ Asian inspired low-carb/keto recipes!
