This might just be one of the easiest and quickest recipes I’ve posted so far…and definitely the most addictive! From start to finish, it takes under 10 minutes to prepare. Once I get started, I feel like I could the entire pound by myself. Your fingers will get covered in garlicky goodness and you will be hooked.
Edamame are young soy beans in their pod. They are loaded with protein, fiber and are low in fat. The isoflavones in edamame help to maintain bone density by exerting estrogen-like effects on bone tissue. It’s also a good source of calcium which is important for strong teeth and bones.
1 lb of frozen fully-cooked edamame
6-8 garlic cloves
1 tbsp. of grated lemon pepper
3 tbsp. soy sauce
red pepper flakes (optional)
1. Finely mince the garlic.
2. In a large pan, heat a small amount of canola oil at medium heat. Once it’s hot, add garlic and cook until it just starts to turn light gold. At this point, add the edamame and lemon pepper.
3. Stir continuously to make sure all of the edamame is defrosting and warming up. After the edamame has been cooking for a minute or 2 (and it no longer appears to have frost on it) add the soy sauce.
4. Turn the heat down to medium low and keep stirring to make sure all of the pods are evenly coated in the sauce and garlic. Once the soy sauce no longer looks liquid, it’s done and ready to eat. Note: Before removing from heat, try one pod to make sure it’s not cold inside.
