Edamame Miso Salad
Edamame is not only a great protein source, but is heart healthy as well and perfect for adding to soups or salads when you need a boost. One half cup contains about 8 grams of protein! The recipe I am sharing with you today combines it with veggies in a miso dressing. If you haven’t had miso, it is a great way to add flavor to dishes. It is actually a fermented soy bean paste and it contains probiotics! It has sort of a salty sweet flavor that is pretty amazing, and it is good in Asian inspired recipes. I love it! For this dressing I combine it with almond butter and a little garlic and it is delicious with the edamame and veggies (or on anything else, this is actually one of my favorite dressing recipes). If you are tired of your other go-to proteins, give edamame a try!
