Spicy Garlic Edamame

Spicy Garlic Edamame

Edamame is one of our favorite side dishes to pair with Asian food. My son REALLY loves it – especially doused with soy sauce. I sautéed this edamame with a bit of butter until cooked through then added the minced garlic and crushed red pepper flakes and cooked it for an additional minute or so. I seasoned it with sea salt, to taste. Of course, my son still added soy sauce to his. It was a hit with all of us.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and edamame together in the skillet and mix well. Add the edamame and stir to coat evenly. Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring often. Add the minced garlic and crushed red pepper flakes and cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Season with sea salt, to taste then remove from the skillet and serve. Enjoy!

Note: To eat whole edamame, simply put the pod into your mouth, bite down and pull through your teeth (similar to eating an artichoke leaf), the soybeans pop out of the pod and into your mouth. Discard the pods.

  5. I love edamame, but have never tried putting soy sauce on them like your son. Sounds good though. I like the addition of red pepper flakes.

  6. Normally I’m totally fine eating my edamame plain and salty…but salty and SPICY sounds even better!
