My 3 kids and I love eating edamame beans for snacks or a healthy appetizer. A friend gave me this recipe for Easy with Cranberries and Feta, and I made it twice in a week. This easy blend starts by using frozen edamame beans, thawed combined with cranberries, feta, olive oil and lime juice. Whether you want a healthy side dish to accompany fish, chicken or beef or a great salad topping, you’ll love this savory, sweet mixture. Edamame beans are so healthy for you. They contain 100 calories with 8 g of protein. It also provides 4 g of fiber and is a good source of calcium, copper, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, thiamin, vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K. Need I say more?
