Asian Spicy Garlic Edamame – an easy, totally addicting snack or side dish – is a flavor explosion in your mouth!
Spicy Garlic Edamame
Have you ever ordered steamed edamame at a Japanese restaurant? Well, these Spicy Garlic Edamame are even better, thanks to the spicy sauce made with garlic, ginger, soy sauce, cayenne, and honey. They are finger-licking good and super easy to make. Edamame is a great plant based source of protein! More edamame recipes I love, Edamame Fried Rice, Spicy Sriracha Tofu Rice Bowls, Edamame Hummus, and Spiralized Raw Zucchini Salad with Avocado and Edamame to name a few.
This spicy snack is so flavorful and made with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. Trust me, make them once, and you’ll be making them again and again! If you cook them, come back and leave a comment! I can’t wait to hear what you think.
How To Eat Edamame
The pod of the edamame is not edible, you only eat the beans inside the pod. To eat edamame, place one edamame pod in your mouth, slide out the edamame beans with your teeth, and discard the pods.
What goes well with edamame?
This spicy edamame would be excellent as a side dish with California Shrimp Sushi Stacks, Cauliflower Fried Rice, General Tso Chicken, or Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry. You could also serve it as a snack or appetizer for a party or football game with these Shrimp Egg Rolls.
- Thaw your edamame overnight in the refrigerator or microwave for a couple of minutes to defrost.
- Use shelled edamame instead of in the pods.
- Swap edamame with green beans or snap peas.
- If you love the spicy garlic sauce, serve it over your favorite roasted vegetables, like broccoli or cauliflower, for a side dish.
- Sub soy sauce for gluten-free soy sauce, coconut aminos, or tamari to make the edamame gluten-free.

Gina and fellow commenters,
Great Grownup Green beans. I really appreciate another cook asking about green beans. I steamed 1.5 lbs ( next time I will do 2 lbs or cut back on sauce) and it made a yummy side dish. My husband ate several servings and he is not a green bean fan.
Also, will try with shelled edamame and serve over cauliflower rice. Thanks again Gina this is a definite keeper.
Definitely a keeper. It’s out new favorite TV snack, I’m making this again tonight (3rd time). Sooo good.
Easy recipe to follow, tastes like restaurant quality!
These were fabulous! Made them today for lunch as part of your 7 day plan meal lineup!
By far the best edamame recipe!!
Bought a bag at Costco and the bag says pods not edible
You don’t eat the pods… they’re basically a finger food and you squeeze the bean out into your mouth. 🙂
These are absolutely delicious!
