Made with garlic, lemon and lots of spice – This super tasty edamame is about to become your favorite anytime snack! It’s an incredibly easy recipe and is packed with protein too!
Ok, how many of you can’t go to a sushi restaurant without ordering edamame for an appetizer? I sure as heck can’t! So when I found out that you can actually buy edamame and make it yourself at home… well let’s just say my life was changed that day! 😉 And naturally I had to put a little spin on it and create this incredibly easy and delicious everything seasoned edamame!
What is edamame?
Glad you asked! In simple terms, edamame is just a type of soybean. However, the term “edamame” refers to a cooking method where the bean pods are lightly boiled/steamed to “cook” the beans inside, making them much easier for us to eat. (There’s your scientific fact for the day! 😉 )
Where do I find shelled edamame?
Most grocery stores carry shelled edamame in their frozen vegetable section. However, I’ve also found that some stores may only sell de-shelled edamame instead. We do not want this! If you can’t find shelled edamame in the frozen section, just ask an employee and they’ll show you where they keep it.
Side Note: Trader Joe’s ALWAYS has frozen edamame and is where I get mine. It comes in a package titled “lightly salted” which is completely fine for this recipe. 🙂
How do I eat edamame?
Believe it or not, I get this question quite a bit! Just take the soybean pod, place it in your mouth, run your teeth over the skin to squeeze out the seeds and discard the skin. (DO NOT eat the skin! It’s very hard and and has a very bitter taste!)
I’d be lying if I said I haven’t made this everything seasoned edamame at least 3 times this week… But it’s just so good and makes for a perfect healthy and protein packed snack! Trust me when I say, YOUR FAMILY IS GOING TO LOVE IT!
Hope you’re all enjoying this fabulous day babes!
