Edamame is a Japanese name for immature or young soybeans and is originally from East Asia. In the US, you usually get frozen pods and can be boiled or steamed. They are a great source of protein and are rich in fiber, amino acids, vitamin K vitamin C, and magnesium. But also note that they are soy and can potentially disrupt your hormones.
You have probably had them at a Japanese restaurant as an appetizer, either lightly salted or spicy. The spicy ones are sometimes referred to as Angry. My quick and easy way to add spice to Asian dishes is using Sambal Paste. You can but it at your local grocery store in the Asian section or an Asian market.
I usually buy the lightly salted edamame packets at Trader Joe’s which are in their frozen section. So go ahead and add some spice to your Happy Hours and evenings with this quick and easy angry spicy edamame snack. You can adjust the spice levels as per your taste.
