Edamame on the Grill

Edamame on the Grill – Who knew?

I love eating edamame as a snack with drinks before a meal.  There is something so satisfying about them.  Who knew you could make the on the grill?!

Edamame packs a powerful punch when it comes to nutritional content. It is high in phytoestrogens, a natural plant estrogen. A 100 gram serving (1/3 ounce or about 35 pods) of the beans only, not the pods, has 125 calories pack with 12 grams of protein, 13 grams of carbohydrates, and only 3.5 grams of fat. It is rich in calcium, Vitamin C, Iron, phosphorus and is a good source of vitamin A.  They make a great snack fo people watching their carb intake and they appeal to those looking for a high protein snack.

Edamame on the Grill

1 lb bag frozen edamame, thawed
1 Tbs soy sauce
1 tsp salt

Place the edamame in the center of a 3 foot long piece of heavy duty aluminium foil that is folded in half lengthwise. Drizzle with the soy sauce and sprinkle with salt. Fold one end of the foil over the other and seal the sides closed.

Preheat the grill to medium hot. Place the foil packet directly on the grate and grill for about 5 minutes. Transfer the foil packet to a plate. Mixture the edamame to combine the soy sauce and salt and serve.
