Gingered Rice & Edamame
Edamame beans are high in protein and a favorite with kids. Most families are familiar with these beans by now. However, if you are not, add them to your diet in this dish or as a high-protein snack with a shake of salt - delicious! Ginger adds a snappy flavor and aids in digestion. The combination together is fresh and fun.
