Soy and Ginger Edamame Beans

When it comes to lunch or midweek dinner ideas, clients often ask me for ideas that won't break the bank or take all their precious spare time to prepare.  I am a fan of meals that are simple to prepare, satisfying and wholesome.  Although dietary variety is important - in reality for most of us this means having 5 or 6 'go to' meals that you can work into your every day routines, rather than a new recipe for every lunch and dinner you eat!  The recipe below fits the criteria for being easy and cost effective - two of the essentials to me.


  • 1 packet of frozen edamame with shell on (like these >)
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup reduced salt soy sauce
  • 2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp sesame or peanut oil
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tsp fresh grated garlic


How to make:

  1.  Steam or blanch edamame beans then dry them off and place in a bowl.
  2.  Put oil, ginger and garlic in a saucepan on medium heat.  Sauté for about 30 seconds.
  3.  Add brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, chilli flakes and water.  Simmer until the mixture thickens - about 7 minutes. Stir frequently to avoid burning.
  4.  Once thickened, add the edamame beans, toss and serve.
