Football watch parties are all about the excitement of the game, and, of course, the delicious snacks. The typical game day spread often includes chips, wings, and pizza. But there’s a healthier and equally satisfying option you might want to consider – edamame. This little green bean packs a big punch of flavor, nutrition, and versatility. It’s the ultimate healthy snack for your Sunday football gathering.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add the frozen edamame, and cook for 3-5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. The magic happens with the seasoning.
Edamame Seasoning Ideas
Salt and Lemon Edamame
The simplest and most popular way to enjoy edamame is to boil it, then sprinkle it with sea salt and some lemon juice.
For a kick of heat, toss your cooked edamame with a spicy seasoning mix that includes chili flakes, paprika, and a dash of cayenne pepper.
Garlic Parmesan Edamame
Create a savory blend by sautéing your cooked edamame with minced garlic and a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese.
Soy Sauce Glazed Edamame
For an umami-rich option, cook your edamame and toss it in a mixture of soy sauce, honey, and sesame seeds.
