Chili Garlic Edamame
Frozen vegetables are a great way to whip up an exciting side dish, or new snack for you or the kids. Teaching kids to remove the beans from the pod can be a fun way to introduce a new green vegetable that’s packed with protein, fiber, folate, magnesium, choline, and potassium.
You can also make this with shelled soybeans, which are great on their own or added to a salad or pasta dish!

You can adjust the amount of red pepper flakes or leave it out altogether to match your preferred spice level.
