Spicy Edamame

Spicy Edamame

Snack on these fiery and spicy edamame sautéed with chili paste, garlic, and miso. It’s intensely delicious. You won’t be able to stop eating these!

For Cooking the Edamame Pods

  • 10-14 oz edamame (in pods; I use frozen edamame)
  • 1 QT water (1 QT = 4 cups)
  • 1 Tbsp kosher salt (Diamond Crystal; use half for table salt) (edamame pods are thick; therefore, we need to salt the cooking water to give the soybeans a subtle base flavor; the spicy and salty flavors are mostly on the pods)

For the Spicy Sauce

  • 1 Tbsp neutral-flavored oil (vegetable, rice bran, canola, etc.)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 Tbsp chili paste (Sambal Oelek)
  • 1 tsp miso
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp mirin
