This week I am sharing a quick and delicious garlic edamame recipe, with a bit of spice, for those of you who are looking for vegan protein ideas! 

We normally find edamame served in Japanese restaurants in their pods; however, they can also be eaten after being cooked out-of-pod. The recipe won’t take more than 15 minutes to make and is very easy to follow.

2 cups edamame beans
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp sriracha 
6 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp sesame seeds 
Heat the sesame oil in a pan and add the garlic, saute for about 2 minutes.  Then add the edamame beans and cook for another 5-6 minutes, until soft and slightly browned.

In a bowl combine the tamari, sriracha and seeds.  Mix in the cooked edamame and serve warm.

Along with tasting great, edamame is good for you. They are high in fibre, antioxidants and protein, making them a great food for vegans and vegetarians. They also contain folate and vitamin K.
There are several ways that you can use this recipe: have them as a quick stand-alone snack, incorporate them into stir fry, salads or other main dishes or, serve as a side dish to your main. Enjoy!
