The Nutrition Facts:
These measure up pretty well! A 2/3 cup (cooked) serving is only 90 calories and has 5 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein! Only 14 total carbs and lots of taste... These make a tasty side dish for dinner or even a great snack option. Ease of preparation is nice. I set the frozen packet in a bowl and microwaved it for 4 minutes. Then, you just split the packet open and dump it into a dish. Bing, bang, boom! How easy was that? LOL 90 calories, 9 net carbs, and 5 grams of protein... Can't ask for a more WLS friendly side dish!
Ingredients: Carrots, sugar snap peas, cooked black beans (water, black beans) and shelled edamama (soybeans) in a sauce containing water, enzyme modified butter, salt, modified corn starch.
