Lean and mean, greens!

Edamame, watercress and pea greens

This nutrient dense dish can be used in a matter of ways – its lean, green and the combination of mint, wasabi and lemon provides it with a delicious flavor! You can serve it as a side to a main protein source or you could even blend it further with some natural yoghurt, garlic and have it as a creamy, zesty dip served with raw vegetable sticks or toasted Turkish bread! Another delicious way to serve these greens is to place the lot in a pan and crack a few eggs into it, place a lid on the pan and bake the eggs for a few minutes – a delicious high protein meal!
