  • 1 leek, diced (white part only)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh Italian parsley

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Cook edamame and corn by boiling water in a medium-sized saucepan. Add edamame and corn, boil for 4 minutes. Strain and set aside.
  3. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix with hands until incorporated.
  4. Measure 4oz. or a heaping ? cup for each serving and place each on prepared baking sheet.

If you practicing food combining and don’t want to add the edamame, feel free to replace with additional veggies – peppers, onion, zucchini would work well. If you’re allergic to corn, feel free to replace with additional veggies – peas, peppers or omit completely.
