This fun recipe features kale leaves stuffed with edamame and miso spread. Kale is an excellent source of fiber, while edamame simply bursts with immunity-boosting copper and bone-strengthening manganese. Enjoy these kale pockets as hors d’oeuvres or as a grab-and-go snack.



  • 12 oz Edamame, Shelled Soybeans
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tsp Premium White Miso Paste
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
  • 1 fruit lime
  • 1/4 cup Parsley, Raw Fresh
  • 4 cups Kale


1 Snap the stems off the kale.
2 Steam the kale leaves for 3-5 minutes, until they turn bright and soft.
3 Place the edamame, garlic, miso, oil, and parsley into a food processor or blender and add the juice from one of the limes.
4 Blend the edamame mixture until smooth. Add more lime if desired.
5 Take each leaf of kale and place a spoonful of the edamame spread in the center.
6 Fold each side of the leaf in like an envelope creating a square.
7 Repeat with each leaf.
8 Turn the pocket over so the open side is on the cutting board and slice diagonally through each pocket to serve.
