Sweet + Spicy Edamame



I'm always on the quest to try new recipes. I've heard wonderful things about
edamame
and 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's 
while in the frozen food section I noticed that they had a good size bag of
Edamame 
for under $2. I was sold!
Even though
I'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!

Have you tried
edamame
before?


Sweet + Spicy Edamame Recipe 

INGREDIENTS


  • 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

INSTRUCTIONS


  1. Cook the edamame according to package directions.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the oyster sauce, soy sauce, water, honey, and red pepper flakes.
  3. Heat sesame oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Once heated, add the garlic. Cook the garlic until fragrant to avoid burning.
  4. 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.
  5. Plate edamame. Pour any glaze left on top of the edamame or put in a small prep dish.

  1. Mmmm, these look delicious. I don't eat edamame often, I find that I like the motion of peeling and eating. The sweet and spicy recipe is very appealing as I love spicy food!

  2. Is edamame like peas (unpeeled of course)? Can I use the recipe with peas? Thanks!

  13. I love edamame. They are so good for you and low calorie. I never thought about making sweet and spicy, but I will now. I usually just use sea salt.

  14. Ohhhh, I like the idea of throwing honey on it too! Normally I'll use Sriracha and soy sauce and it's a bit too spicy!
