edamameand didn't want to invest in a large bag of them at my local wholesale club without trying out a smaller bag first. While shopping at
Aldi'swhile in the frozen food section I noticed that they had a good size bag of
Edamamefor under $2. I was sold!
Even thoughI'm not a spicy food type of person. I do enjoy the spicy sweet combination. I found several recipes. However, didn't find any that really caught my attention. I mix some of my favorite ingredients together and I was so surprised at how delicious this meal taste. I love that it doesn't take long to make and is perfect as an afternoon snack or a dinner side. Trust me, you will love this recipe!

Sweet + Spicy Edamame Recipe
- 2 cups frozen edamame in their shell
- 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic, finely minced
- 1 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- Cook the edamame according to package directions.
- In a small bowl, mix together the oyster sauce, soy sauce, water, honey, and red pepper flakes.
- Heat sesame oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Once heated, add the garlic. Cook the garlic until fragrant to avoid burning.
- Add in the sauce mixture and raise the heat to medium. Let cook, stirring frequently, until the sauce reduces to a glaze, about 5-7 minutes. Once you reach the desired glaze consistency, add in the cooked edamame and toss well.
- Plate edamame. Pour any glaze left on top of the edamame or put in a small prep dish.
