If you don’t have a bag of frozen edamame in your freezer, I recommend adding it to your grocery list right now. I’m a fan of these nutrient-rich soybeans because they’re a stellar source of fiber and plant-based protein meaning they’ll help you walk away from your meal feeling full and satisfied. This spicy recipe is one of my favorite ways to eat ’em because it takes a mere 5 minutes to make and looks like a gourmet dish you’d order at a restaurant. Prepare them in the pod since the shells will slow down your pace and you’ll be able to savor every tasty bite.  

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 3 servings
  • 10oz edamame in the shell (frozen or fresh)
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed and minced 
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon Kosher salt 
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes (or to taste)

Steam edamame according to package instructions. While edamame cooks, whisk together remaining ingredients in a small bowl to make sauce. Once edamame is cooked, toss pods with sauce until evenly coated.
