I made this recipe up as part of the Newman’s Own Family Bites snack category. I had recently eaten some garlic edamame at a nearby restaurant, and thought, “I could make this.” This is not a thought I usually have at restaurants, but I was motivated enough to try because we always have tons of edamame in the freezer.
My girl will eat frozen edamame, because she doesn’t like to wait for me to heat it up. This gives me the shudders, so she usually eats the one she pilfered from the bowl while she’s waiting for me to steam them.
This was so easy, and really satisfied my late afternoon salt craving. I can be kind of a garlic fiend, so don’t think you have to use as much as me… but it does taste so good. She had no trouble finishing off the bowl so you may want to make a separate batch for yourself.
