Sometimes a quick dinner is all you’re looking for and this will definately hit that spot. When it comes to winter, carbs are my go to. Bread, potatoes, pasta you name it! But sometimes I get a hankering for some greens. With COVID restaurants and dining out aren’t a very viable option and neither is getting groceries often. This is why I love frozen veggies! They come in various types, sizes and styles to choose your own adventure.

Whenever I would go out to sushi restaurants I would ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS get edamame, it’s the perfect appetizer. The freshness of the edamame and saltiness was a great intro to dinner. I found myself craving going out and wanted that same experience at home. This is when I remembered I had 2 bags of frozen edamame in the back of my freezer from another time I wanted to cook it and didn’t get around to it.

This was the start of something beautiful. And I also quickly realized how fast you can have dinner or this as a side on the table. Minimal effort, maximum flavour.
