- Boil the edamame pods.
- Chop some garlic and slice some dried chilies.
- Fry the garlic and the chilies in some oil.
- Add some soy sauce and stir fry the edamame pods.
- Serve as a condiment or a side dish, ideally with a bowl of white rice.
The rest of this article will give you more details on making edamame spicy and what other ingredients you can use as substitutes.
You are going to need,
- A pot of water
- A saucepan
- 100g of edamame
- Three garlic cloves
- Three dried chilies
- Two tablespoons of soy sauce
- Two tablespoons of oil
Step 1 – Boil the edamame pods.
Add adequate water until it covers edamame pods and bring it to a boiling temperature.
Add a pleasing amount of salt to the pot of boiling water and boil the edamame pods for about 30 seconds.
To preserve the color, put the boiled edamame pods into a bowl of ice water.
Step 2 – Chop some garlic and slice some dried chilies.
Finely chop three cloves of garlic. Adding more or less garlic depends on your taste. Find what is best for you.
Slice 3 dried chilies of about 1cm in length on a slant angle. Don’t throw away any seeds that fall out. Keep them all together.
Step 3 – Fry the garlic and the chilies in some oil.
To a pan that can hold the 100 g of edamame, add 2 tablespoons of oil and let the oil heat up on medium heat.
Add the chopped garlic, the sliced chilies, and the seeds and fry until the garlic turns golden brown and the chilies start giving out a spicy aroma.
Some chili flakes will also be a great substitute if you do not have dried chilies. We need to learn how to make edamame spicy, don’t we?

Add the edamame pods immediately and stir fry them for 2 minutes until the garlic and chilies nicely coat the outside of the edamame.
