Blistered Edamame [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



Cook Time



  • 1 package frozen edamame in pods, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-inch knob of fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  • wedge of lime (optional)


  1. Before starting this recipe, have everything prepped.
  2. In a small bowl combine tamari or soy sauce, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes. Turn on your stove’s exhaust fan.
  3. Place a large skillet over high heat and let the pan get very hot. Add the sesame oil to the pan.
  4. Carefully add the edamame (it can splatter) but don’t stir it. Allow it to sear and blister for about 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add the tamari mixture and toss it to combine and continue to cook everything until sauce coats the edamame; no more than 2-3 minutes. Transfer edamame to a serving bowl.
