edamame beans2

These edamame beans are the perfect game day snack. They are also the perfect thing to snack on while watching Korean dramas…just sayin’.

So easy to make but even more, they are DELICIOUS! My husband and I can eat a whole 1 pound bag of it, in one sitting. These beans will also have you licking your fingers dry, so please remember to wash your hands before consuming.

Ingredients:

1 pound of cooked edamame beans
3 cloves of chopped garlic
2 Tbsp of finely minced lemongrass
1/2 tsp of chili flakes
1 Tbsp of soy sauce(or more)
2 pinches of salt
1/2 tsp of sugar
1 tsp of sesame oil
1 tsp of chili oil
roasted sesame seeds

*You will also need some olive oil.

Instructions:

1. In a small bowl, combine your soy sauce, salt, sugar, and then set aside.
2. On medium heat, pour in some olive oil. Add in your minced lemongrass and cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened.
3. Add in your garlic and chili flakes. Continue to cook until fragrant.
4.Stir your reserved soy sauce mixture and then add it into the skillet. Mix well with the lemongrass and garlic.
5. Toss in your cooked edamame beans. Turn up the heat a little bit and continue to cook until all of the beans are evenly coated with the sauce, or until heated through.

Notes: Feel free to add a little bit more soy sauce or salt if you want it saltier. If you have some ginger, grate some of that in too for another kick of flavor! YUM!!
