Our family loves edamame as a side dish. But, it can get boring. It's almost inevitably served with nothing more than sea salt - not that there's anything wrong with that. 

So, I decided to "kick-up" my edamame with the use of some additional spices, including togarashi. This is a very simple side dish or snack that you and yours are bound to love. 


1 Tbs. kosher salt

1 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 Tbs. tokarashi spice (found in Asian grocers)

2 tsp. black sesame seeds

1 lb. bag frozen edamame (shell-on)


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. 

While the water is boiling, mix together all of the ingredients except the edamame in a small bowl. 

Add the frozen edamame to the boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes after the water comes back to the boil. 

Drain the edamame. 

Toss the cooked edamame with the spice mixture in a large serving bowl. 

Serve warm, at room temperature, or even cold.
