  • 2 cups frozen edamame in their shell
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp chili oil (or crushed red pepper flakes)
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 clove of garlic, very finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, peeled & very finely minced


  • Cook the edamame according to package directions. 
  • Combine the soy sauce, water, rice vinegar, brown sugar and chili oil (or crushed red pepper flakes) together in a bowl; whisk until well combined. Set aside.
  • Heat the canola oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds.
  • Add the soy sauce mixture to the skillet and raise the heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until the sauce reduces and thickens to a glaze, about 5 minutes.
  • Once you've achieved your desired glaze consistency, add the cooked edamame and toss to coat evenly.
  • Pour into a serving bowl and drizzle any excess glaze from the pan on top. Sprinkle with some toasted sesame seeds and serve immediately. Enjoy!
