Garlic Chile Edamame

Garlic Chile Edamame, perfect for an appetizer or snack.
The girls and I first had these at a sushi bar in Houston. So good, usually when I'm eating sushi I might eat a few salted edamame and call it good, because let's face it I'm there for sushi. But these garlicky, spicy, sweet, salty Garlic Chile Edamame were so yummy I think we even ordered seconds. I'm sure of it actually.
These are the perfect appetizer, but they are also great for after school snacks and movie nights. The ingredients are simple and things I always have on hand. I keep a peeled piece of ginger in my freezer. Whenever I need grated ginger I just pull it out and grate it with my microplane while frozen. Works like a charm!

These are also quick to make, ten minutes and they are ready to eat. Very easy, your kids could make these on their own. Okay, depending on age. Mine are between 7-11. The only thing my 7 year old would need help with is the hot water on the stove.

Don't they look yummy? SO SO good. I hope you'll try these.
