the best thing I ever ate: garlic edamame

I like to order edamame as a starter when I go out for sushi but it can be hit or miss. Then my husband and I went to a restaurant that offered garlic edamame and our lives were changed forever.

No exaggeration, it is that amazing. 



Here is the recipe: 


  • 1 bag frozen edamame
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • coarse sea salt
  • soy sauce 


  1. Add salt to pot of water. Boil the edamame as directed on package. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Crush the cloves of garlic. Toss them into the skillet and saute one minute. Add edamame and keep that saute going, until the outsides of the edamame are just browning. Saute with soy sauce one to two minutes. 
  3. Serve in a large bowl with a bowl on the side for the edamame shells. Serve with soy sauce if you feel like it (unnecessary).

That's it. So easy. So delicious.
