Edamame with Cumin, Chilli and Garlic

Something to get your detox juices flowing: lightly spiced edamame with crispy garlic... or スパイシー枝豆 for those versed in Japanese.

It's loaded with Iron, Protein, as well as Vitamin A and Vitamin C. We have shelled edamame too but this is way more fun to eat.

Reciting the first five minutes of Shrek while eating a plate of nasi lemak is something I am proud of.
