Chili Garlic Edamame

Chili Garlic Edamame make an easy to prepare healthy snack that gets done in 10 minutes from start to finish. Made with a wonderful chili paste and garlic sauce to coat the steamed edamame, you’ll be quite addicted to this snack, but in a healthy spicy way.

While we were enjoying ” all the out of world delicious cuisine ”  in Singapore,  something on many restaurant offerings caught my eye: “Spicy Edamame”. My family and I felt instant connection to it when we saw it on the menu, so we ordered it. We totally had one of those drool worthy WOW moment when a beautiful plate of spicy edamame arrived at our table. 

It was a perfectly awesome mix of shelled edamame drizzled with soy sauce, chili paste and garlic. What a cool concept we thought! With this version of Chili Garlic Edamame, the spices on the outside of the pod are delivered to your tongue before you bite on the inside bean. It’s spicy, it’s bold ..I guess spicy and bold often goes hand in hand ; and it’s addictive too!

These Chili Garlic Edmame snack qualifies as “healthy” across all different diet following groups. I love serving it in just about every fun gatherings I host like book club or playdate. Not to mention while just lounging watching Netflix or NFL. See, it spans all genera 🙂

I continuously find myself (and others) reaching for one after the other. A serving bowl empties and yummy taste lingers..

One important note- I am sure you really will fall in love with the spicy seasoning coated outside. But PLEASE (pretty please) Do NOT eat the outer pod. It is really, really chewy. It’s very difficult to swallow that shell. So just taste the seasoning and eat the inside beans. One at a time please 🙂

And when you serve this as a snack, don’t forget to provide other bowl to put the discarded shells especially when you are entertaining guests at party!

You’ll find two varieties of edamame — shelled and unshelled. They will be typically stocked in frozen vegetables section. For snacking purposes, stick with the unshelled variety, where the beans are still in the pod. Shelled beans are good to add in fried rice and pasta as bulking agent.

Since frozen edamame is already cooked, it just needs a few minutes to reheat. These edamame can be served hot, warm, at room temperature, or even chilled.

Very high in fiber and plant based protein, edamame beans offer great health benefits. What’s fabulous about this dish? You can enjoy guilt-free since it’s healthy plant based snack.

Ingredients:
1 -14 oz bag of Frozen Edamame in shells
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon chili sauce ( like sriracha)
2 cloves of garlic minced

    This healthy snack looks so delicious. I wish I could buy edamame here. I’ve tasted the shelled ones with salt and pepper. Adding chili garlic sauce is a good idea.

    I love this recipe idea! I really enjoy edamame in the pods, and the way you suck the flavouring on the outside of the pods into your mouth as you pull out the edamame peas! The flavours look so good!
