We’re all familiar with avocado toast. Maybe too familiar. Maybe we’re even a little kind of over it? Sorry, we didn’t mean to cross the line, we take it back! However, sometimes we need to mix it up from time to time. That’s why Jen always comes back to one of her favorite simple lunches— edamame toast.
Edamame is what we know and love as a soybean, however, it’s not your typical processed soy like tofu or soy milk. It’s in it’s natural, pure form, and an incredibly rich source of protein. It’s also a nutrient powerhouse of fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin K, so you feel satiated for longer, fight aging and disease, and promote healthy bones and skin.
Opt for a nice, rustic piece of sourdough, go for classic sandwich bread, or even try a hearty, gluten-free slice for your healthiest option. Millet bread is great because it’s protein rich as well. These are such great vessels for everything spreadable, which is why we like to cook edamame this way!
Heat the pan over high heat and stir fry the Edamame for 2 minutes.
Add the garlic and quickly stir for another minute.
Reduce the heat to medium-low, and add the lime juice to the pan along with the salt and stir thoroughly for about a minute (crushing some of the Edamame beans along the way).
Toast the bread to golden, spoon in the Edamame beans and top with the tomatoes for serving.
