Here’s a creative and tasty way to jazz up those heart-healthy edamame (soy beans) for your next gathering or dinner party. They’re fantastic for people of all ages and a great source of protein if you’re aiming to consume less meat.


  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (or 2 teaspoons of pre-minced garlic in a jar)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 package (16-ounces) frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste


In a large pan over medium heat, heat the sesame oil. Cook for 1 minute after adding the garlic and ginger.

Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring regularly, until the edamame and soy sauce are golden brown. Turn off the heat.

Whisk together rice vinegar, oil, mustard, and wasabi paste in a small bowl. Serve with wasabi dressing over edamame.
