Time to give your typical pre-dinner appetizer snacks a little Japanese twist and switch up the likes of cherry tomatoes with edamame! These little fresh soy beans aren’t just rich in fiber, magnesium and oligo elements such as vitamin B9, they also protect skin cells by stimulating and revitalizing them. Just eat them raw or baked.

To cook, simply preheat an oven to 425°F, and spread 1.5 cups of edamame beans on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with sesame oil and bake for ten minutes. When cooked, remove from oven sprinkle with sesame seeds and grated ginger to enjoy.
