Food Friday Featuring: Garlic Sesame Seasoned Edamame
Delicious and embarrassingly simple, seasoned edamame is a fantastic way to enjoy snacking the healthy way. Traditionally edamame is known as a side dish served in Japanese restaurants that is boiled in the shells, and salted.
I have always loved this and started to do a little research into different seasoning ideas for this yummy snack. I came across this recipe and thought I would give it a try and I was not disappointed. Sweet flavors beside punchy garlic and sesame notes was a perfect combination. And the best part, it was ready in minutes.
- 2 cups frozen edamame, in shells
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
- 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- Cook edamame in a pot of boiling water until tender; drain and set aside.
- In a separate pot, combine garlic, teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, and oil and heat until a sauce is made, about 5 minutes.
- Add edamame to pot and stir well to coat. Spoon edamame into a serving bowl and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve warm or room temperature.
