I love edamame and I love cheese, so Cheesy Edamame is the perfect snack or side dish for me! My kids also love this healthy vegetable and we eat it often with dinner, as well as in salads. Whenever we get sushi, my kids get a bento box that includes edamame. My daughter is a vegetable eating machine and sometimes she only wants green vegetables for dinner. Edamame is one of her favorite foods! Cheesy Edamame, which I found at allrecipes.com, is super easy to make and would be a great snack or side dish. As I am trying to make some better choices with eating, I much rather have this than chips or something I will quickly regret. I know we are all busy and get caught up in our daily routines, so it is nice to have something quick, easy, and healthy to eat. I also love that Cheesy Edamame is full of protein, fiber, and vitamins!
