This spicy snack is packed with both fiber and protein, it’s easy to make and it’s completely delicious. Because the edamame is in the shell, they’ll take a little more time to eat—so it will slow down your pace. You can add a bit more kick by increasing the red pepper flakes. Eating with chopsticks is totally optional.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 4 servings
  • 14 to 16 ounces edamame in the shell
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes (or to taste)

Microwave edamame per package directions (or prepare on stovetop, if you prefer). While edamame cooks, whisk together remaining ingredients in a small bowl to make sauce. Once edamame is cooked, toss pods with sauce until coated. Enjoy.
