What a delicious form of spaghetti made out of green soybeans. Their high protein content makes them a perfect post-workout recovery fuel.
What is the nutritional benefit of edamame spaghetti?
In a regular serving size, which is usually 56g of dry pasta, you would find 24g of Protein in the Edamame version, compared to 7g in regular white spaghetti.
Their Fiber content is about 6-times higher, 13g compared to 2g.
Healthy Carbs are also included, 20g, which is about 1/2 of the content of regular spaghetti.
Additionally they are high in Iron and Potassium which are both essential minerals for athletes.
Here an easy recipe idea which is also perfect for meal-prepping:
-) Olive oil
in a pan until onions are translucent.
-) Yellow Corn
and boil for a few minutes.
Create a sauce by adding
-) 3 tbs of Plain Greek Yogurt
-) 1 tbs of Sour Cream
-) Salt, pepper, garlic and ginger
-) Optional 1: Baby Scallops
-) Optional 2: Sprinkle with Parmesan before serving
For a high-protein plant-based recipe, use soy-based cream instead, and replace the scallops with pea-protein flakes.
Both versions are delicious!
