EJ's school does a daily tasting exercise and this month's theme was legumes. EJ's assigned day is today and because she was the last tasting of the month, there weren't a lot of choices left. So I asked for suggestions and we decided on edamame. EJ & I prepared them yesterday and they were so simple to make. In addition, everyone in the family liked them...even Jack! Truly shocking.
I am excited for this new snacking option and am planning to hunt for some recipes that use them too. I am also hoping to uncover some other foods I can sneak by my picky eater. Introducing edamame as "popping beans" certainly helped Jack try them (still shocking that he liked them too though). Any recommendations/recipes for things kids can't help but love (even though they are good for them or different)?
