Low Glycemic Recipe Edamame Succotash – 204 Calories

Traditional succotash is made with corn, but shelled edamame (which can be found in the frozen food section of most grocery stores) is higher in protein and has a lower GI count. Plus, it makes for such a pretty final dish! Serve this alongside your favorite grilled meats, or with hamburgers for delicious picnic-style fare!
