Edamame with Chili Peppers & Garlic
Edamame is a favorite side dish/snack that I serve my family a few times a week. My husband and toddler both love it and I am overjoyed that my little one is getting protein and fiber while having fun picking the beans from the pods. We eat edamame plain mostly but when I want spicy, salty and garlicky, seasoning these babies is the way to go. Best part is that you can make edamame in a few minutes without thinking too much about it.
Just grab a pack of frozen edamame at the store and boil in water. The directions say to boil for 6-7 minutes but I like my soybeans extra crunchy so I only cook them for 5 minutes.
- 1 16 ounce pack frozen edamame
- sea salt
- garlic powder
- dried chili peppers
- Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan
- Add frozen edamame and boil uncovered for 4-7 minutes
- Drain and transfer edamame to a large bowl
- Sprinkle with salt, garlic powder and chili peppers
- Toss and taste to see if you want more seasoning
