Edamame is a staple of Japanese restaurant menus. The young soybeans are often boiled or steamed and lightly salted as a tasty appetizer. These beans are nutritious and are high in protein and dietary fiber. The Only Bean is a company that has taken this legume and turned it into both a pasta and a portable snack. For those of you who are curious, all beans are legumes but legumes aren’t necessarily beans. Soy happens to be both so we’ll be using the term interchangeably.
As far as snacking goes, you’re probably loyal to either team savory or team sweet. For those who enjoy a salty, spicy snack The Only Bean makes roasted edamame for your snacking pleasure. The beans can be purchased in either a .9 ounce or 4 ounce resealable bag, which makes these perfect for taking along on road trips or for snacking on the go. The edamame comes in three flavors including sea salt, sriracha, and buffalo.
These beans are a great, savory snack option. Depending on the flavor, the edamame have either 13 or 14 grams of protein per serving. They only have 2-3 grams of net carbs making these a low-carb and keto-friendly snack.
The Only Bean edamame are a high protein snack!
I’m excited to try The Only Bean edamame. Besides eating them straight from the bag, I think they will make a great crunchy addition to my lunch salads. Online reviews are very favorable with the sea salt flavor being most popular.
While I enjoy a delicious bowl of pasta, I know that due to dietary restrictions, not everyone is able to indulge in such a carb fest. The Only Bean makes a fettuccini and spaghetti made only from organic edamame beans. With 44 grams of protein and 19 grams of fiber per serving, this is a healthier alternative to traditional pasta.
The Only Bean edamame and pasta can be purchased via the company’s website or on Amazon.
