Garlic Edamame 3

I am always looking for quick, easy and talked about appetizers. Well, I was at a friends house a few weeks ago and she made these amazing little edamame bites and DAMN they were delicious. She got the recipe from Joyous Apron and happily passed it on to me. We had a party to go to this weekend and I made these Garlic Edamame and everyone inhaled them in about 15 minutes. They are just so easy to eat and kinda addicting.

Not only are they easy to eat they are SUPER easy to make.  Seriously, they take about 10 minutes to make.  My only tip to pass on is to watch the garlic.  You want the garlic to LIGHTLY brown, not burn. If it burns you need to throw it out and start over. There is a huge difference between browned and burnt. Here is a picture of my garlic that is browned.

I found frozen edamame at Trader Joes, but you can find it in most grocery stores. If you can’t find frozen then use fresh!

These can be served hot, warm or room temperature. Perfect for a holiday party on the buffet.  You can definitely pass these around at a party, but people typically don’t just eat one and the server might be standing in one place all night.

Enjoy this time of year! I know its crazy busy with parties, charities, kids performances, exams, wrapping gifts.., but try to take a minute and enjoy the season:)

Garlic Edamame

A salty, garlicky, delicious way to serve Edamame. 


  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce (I use low sodium)
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1 lb frozen edamame, thawed (to make it faster)


  1. In a small bowl combine soy sauce, sugar, water and corn starch. 

  2. In a large skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and saute or about 1 minute. Brown the garlic, but DO NOT burn it. 

  3. Add the soy sauce mixture to the skillet then add the edamame and toss well until coated and warmed.  You can put the edamame frozen into the skillet if you do not have time to thaw just make sure you heat the pods through-about 5 minutes. 

  4. Serve warm
