  • 18 oz edamame
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce low sodium, or tamari to make it gluten-free
  • 1 knob ginger about 2 tablespoons
  • 4 tablespoons water


  • ½ teaspoon chili flakes or peperoncino
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds to garnish


  • Mince the garlic cloves and ginger knob.
    1 knob ginger, 4 garlic cloves
  • Steam. Bring about ½ inch of water to boil. Place a steamer or metal colander on top, and add the edamame beans. If the edamame benas are frozen, allow for 4 minutes. If they have been thawed, allow 2 minutes.
    18 oz edamame
  • Drain the edamame beans.
    18 oz edamame
  • Stir fry. In a small saucepan, stir fry in low heat, the minced garlic and ginger, soy sauce, water, and pepperoncino flakes. Keep going for 2 minutes and remove from heat.
    4 garlic cloves, 4 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 knob ginger, 4 tablespoons water, ½ teaspoon chili flakes
  • Mix everything. In the same saucepan, add the edamame beans and mix.
  • Serve in a bowl sprinkling with sesame seeds (optional).
    1 tablespoon sesame seeds



If you haven't eaten edamame beans before, you should know pods are not meant to be eaten. Squeeze the pods, and the edible beans will come out.
You can then suck on the pods, as they are likely to be full of flavor, as they were in contact with the soy and garlic mix.
