Brooding On

Parmesan Roasted Edamame

As a runner who eats very little meat, I'm always looking for good foods that pack a punch of protein (try saying that 5 times fast: "pack a punch of protein. pack a punch of protein . . ."). 

Anyway, this Pinterest recipe fits the bill and works as an acceptable evening munchy. 

To make, preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Quickly thaw frozen edamame by running it under tap water.  Spread beans out on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with a little olive oil (1 Tbs. is plenty for a 12 oz. bag of edamame).  Stir to coat.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and (up to) 1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese.

Stirring once mid-way through, roast for 15-20 minutes or until crisp.

Pick out a good movie on Netflix, find a blanket and someone to share it with, and settle in with your guilt-free munchy.  :)
