Good morning, friends! I have a feeling that you guys are feeling like me right now – ready for some simple, healthy eats after all the holiday indulgence! Well, I’ve got you covered – introducing Edamame Bruschetta! Easy to make, simple, delicious, and protein packed, too. The perfect snack.
My friends at Wasa recently reached out to me about creating a recipe that would go well with their line of crispbread crackers. Funnily enough, I actually ate Wasa crackers a lot when I was teaching English in Prague ! Considering I couldn’t read the ingredient labels on any of the other cracker-like items at the store, it seemed like a safe bet. I love that they’re super crunchy and only have a few, pronounceable ingredients, too.
Wasa sent me a gift card (to purchase ingredients) and four boxes of different crispbread varieties (they have a ton: Whole Grain, Multi Grain, Light Rye, Hearty Rye, Sourdough Rye, Fiber Rye, and Sesame) to use for my creation. For this recipe, I decided to rock the classic multi grain.
I was in the mood for a healthy and protein-packed snack, so I decided to try my hand at a fun bruschetta using edamame (soy beans), which we randomly have mass quantities of in the freezer right now. I think Matt and I both keep buying it, thinking we’re out… and now we have a fridge full of frozen edamame. I’m okay with that, especially when it makes things as delicious as this bruschetta!
Makes about 4 snack sized servings
This simple bruschetta makes a great healthy and protein-packed snack or party appetizer.
1 C shelled edamame (if frozen, let it defrost first)
4 fresh basil leaves
2 Tsbp. grated parmesan
1 Tbsp. water
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 tsp. lemon juice
Place all ingredients in a food processor and whirl away! Once the ingredients are processed somewhat evenly, your bruschetta is ready to go. Serve atop Wasa crispbread for crunchy deliciousness and enjoy!
Easy enough, right? Give it a try! This would be a fun snack during the workday, too – just pack the bruschetta mixture and the crispbread in separate ziplock bags, then assemble when you’re ready to eat! That way nothing gets soggy.
In the spirit of recipe creation, Wasa also offered to provide a $25 Gift Card and two boxes of Wasa Crispbread to one of you guys!

Deliciousness! I like the bright green of the edamame, it makes me think of the spring and warm weather. First thing I'd make would be toasted almond, coconut and banana sandwiches! They are equally delicious and nutritious. Thanks for the fun giveaway, I would love to try Wasa!
