Garlic Edamame Recipe | Japanese Recipes | PBS Food

This garlicky variation on classic Japanese edamame from Marc Matsumoto of the Fresh Tastes blog will leave you licking your fingers.



  • 1 package frozen edamame (13 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 8 grams garlic, grated (about 1 large clove)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In a bowl, whisk the sesame oil, grated garlic, and black pepper together.
  2. Some edamame are precooked and can be heated in the microwave, others need to be boiled. Follow the directions on the package to reheat/cook your edamame.
  3. Make sure your edamame is well drained and then dump them into the bowl with the garlic mixture and toss to coat evenly.
  4. Sprinkle the salt over the edamame and toss again until the salt is evenly distributed.
  5. Serve immediately.


If you like your food spicy, try adding a squirt of your favorite Asian hot sauce to the garlic mixture before tossing it with the edamame.
