My experimentation with the loveliness that is edamame continues with this chili garlic edamame. Sure edamame is great steamed with a little kosher salt tossed on top, but toss it in some sauteed garlic and spicy sambal oelek and you’ve got a whole new ball game.
The other night Ryan and I were watching a baseball game and I didn’t want to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen making dinner. Instead I decided to make us a few different appetizers to snack on while we watched. I went with an Asian them and I cooked up a few of these potstickers, some wontons and this edamame dish. So quick and easy that I had it all on the table before the 2nd inning was over.

pardon my ignorance, but what is sambal oelek and where do I find it?

Alyson- Sambal Oelek is a chili paste you can find it in the Asian section of your local grocery store or Asian market. You can also buy it on Amazon. Hope this helps!

I just made this and we love it! I added a little fish sauce to help everything stick.
I found you on foodgawker.

Awesome, for some reason it reminds me of all the different ways they flavor sunflower seeds. Possibilities = endless.

My 7-yr-old would cryyyy if I did this to our simply salted edamame, but maybe on a night when she’s not around?!? Has anyone tried the steam-in-a-bag version by Target brand Archer Farms. I buy them a few bags at a time, because I can’t find them anywhere else!

Love your blog! The photos are amazing, they look so professional. The lighting is just perfect.

Thanks everyone! Molly- You just eat the beans inside the pods.
MollyApril 27, 2010 at 7:21 am
Do you eat the whole pods in this dish or just the beans themselves?

I love edamame. These looks incredible!

Oh so healthy and delicious! I heard that edamame is one of the healthiest things you can eat. It’s so hard to find them around here, though. :(

The picture alone is mouth watering, can’t wait to try the recipe! We at Seapoint Farms manufacture and distribute edamame so I love coming across these spiced up recipes.

Love how you spiced it up!
