    Have you tried edamame before?  Edamame beans are green soybeans, with a sweet, mild and slightly “bean-y” flavor.  In Japan, edamame beans are often boiled in salted water in their pods and served as an appetizer.  Between sips of beer, you pop the beans out to eat before the main course is served.

    Today I’ll show you how you can turn regular edamame into a spicy version, Spicy Edamame.

    A Whole New Way to Enjoy Edamame

    The regular edamame doesn’t have much flavor, but when sautéed with a simple triad of chili paste, garlic, and miso, edamame beans get a transformative kick. It’s fiery and punchy, with the perfect mix of peppery spice and aromatic garlic flavor. The savory umami flavor comes from the versatile seasoning, miso. As you pop the beans into the mouth, every bite is exciting and enjoyable, leaving you wanting more.

    If you are not a big fan of heat or spicy food, no problem!  My children eat the non-spicy version, but it still has plenty of flavor from the garlic miso seasoning.  They love popping the pods out of edamame beans.  You can alway add more or less chili paste to suit your taste.

    Perfect snack for party

    This stir-fried edamame with spicy miso garlic is super simple to make and highly addictive.  Trust me, it’s hard to stop eating them! If you plan to serve them as an appetizer or snack for home parties, make sure you make a big batch because your guests will immediately fall for this new version of edamame.
