Honey-glazed Carrots and Edamame

For a twist on traditional peas and carrots, try this heart-healthy honey-glazed carrots and edamame recipe.

Also known as green sweet soybeans, edamame are rich in soy protein, which can help lower cholesterol.

An added bonus: Eating more vegetables is one of the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) steps for lowering high blood pressure. You can find edamame in the freezer case or produce department.

For easy honey removal, spray cups and spoons with cooking spray before measuring.
