This shelled edamame recipe is full of flavor and takes just 5 minutes! An easy side dish, it’s flash sauteed in a hot pan with garlic and soy sauce.


  • 1 pound frozen shelled edamame
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Optional: Toasted sesame seeds, for the garnish


  1. Rinse the frozen edamame under warm water in a strainer, then shake off excess liquid.
  2. Smash and peel the garlic cloves.
  3. Add the toasted sesame oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the smashed garlic cloves and edamame and cook for 2 minutes until warmed through but still bright green.
  4. Add the soy sauce and stir until evaporated, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the salt. Discard the garlic cloves. If desired, sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
