Galic Edamame


I first had these at Citrus Club in San Francisco and loved them. I tried to replicate them at home as we don’t make it out into the City as often. I’ve come close to replicating it…and that will have to do for now.

Ingredients:
  • 1 bag frozen edamame (no salt, in pods)
  • 2 tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped (use less or more depending on your preference)
  • 1-2 teaspoons of oil (olive or canola)
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
Directions:
  1. Prepare Edamame per directors on package. Drain and set aside.
  2. While edamame is cooking, heat oil in sauce pan or nonstick pan over medium heat. When oil is hot, add garlic and crushed red pepper. Let cook for ~1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. Mix soy sauce, corn starch and water. Stir to dissolve. Add to garlic and redpepper. Keep stirring over medium until sauce thickens (~3-4 minutes). Turn off stove.
  4. Pour sauce over edamame and toss to cover evenly. Enjoy!
