Spicy Garlic Edamame Might Be My Favorite Healthy Snack Ever

garlic sesame edamame

Edamame is loaded with protein, fiber, and good carbs. It’s also super easy to prepare and fun to eat.

Wait, Is Edamame Healthy?

Most of the soy in the US is genetically modified. While soy has a bad rap in nutrition, it’s processed soy that is harmful to health. Forms of processed soy include soybean oil or soybean texturizers and stabilizers. Whole, unprocessed organic soybeans like edamame can be part of a healthy eating plan. Look for organic as often as possible.

How to Make Spicy Garlic Edamame—It’s Addictive!

While just plain or lightly salted edamame makes a great on-the-go snack, the spicy version below is one of my all-time-favorite to-die-for spicy treats.

Raw garlic is loaded with antioxidants and healing properties; some nutritionists say that it’s the most powerful medicine on the planet. It’s also potent, so hopefully whoever you enjoy this treat with likes it as much as you do.

The key to this recipe is to let the pressed raw garlic marinate in the toasted sesame oil while you cook the edamame to let the flavors marinate together.

Between the kick from the raw garlic, rich flavor of the toasted sesame oil and heat from the chili flakes this snack is a total party in your mouth.

Spicy Garlic Edamame


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 package frozen organic edamame (about 16 ounces), shelled or not, your preference
  • 3 large cloves garlic, peeled and grated or pressed
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil*
  • 1 tablespoon of another healthy oil of your choice – flax, macadamia nut and avocado oil are all great (or, you can use 2 tablespoons of toasted sesame oil)
  • a sprinkle of red chili flakes (1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon, depending on how spicy you like it)
  • sea salt (about 1-2 teaspoons) — large flakes are especially nice here

Instructions

  1. My favorite way to make this is with edamame still in the shell. I also use 1/2 teaspoon of red chili flakes – I like it hot!
  2. Bring a large pot of purified water to a boil. While you’re waiting for the water to boil, press the garlic into the bottom of a large mixing bowl then add the toasted sesame oil, red pepper flakes, and sea salt. Mix well.
  3. Cook the edamame in the boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Frozen edamame is already cooked, you just need to heat it up. Drain and add the hot edamame to the mixing bowl and toss well with the other ingredients.
  4. Serve warm, room temperature or even cold. Can be kept in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator up to three days.

Notes

*Toasted sesame oil has a wonderful deep flavor and can be purchased in the ethnic food aisle of most grocery stores. Make sure it’s toasted sesame oil and not plain sesame oil, there’s a big difference in flavor.

    This was easy and great (once I realized you’re not supposed to eat the shells LOL). Thank you – I was looking for a healthy snack that had some kick – and this is it. 🙂

  2. Ira Lofthouse says:

    This is exactly the recipe I was looking for. Wish I could give this a rating. I google edame snack recipes but I couldn’t find any other recipes that uses toasted sesame oil. So glad I found this!
