Did You Know Your Air Fryer turns corn on the cob into something out of this world, roasts veggies to perfection, and makes restaurant-worthy Air Fryer Edamame?
Why Air Fryer Edamame?
Once you have an air fryer, you get the itch to try and cook all the things in it. And I can assure you that it’s happened to me too.
That’s why I had to see how edamame would do air fried and it was tasty!
Air Fryer Edamame changes the playing field plus it’s an easy lunch or dinner!
If you don’t have an air fryer yet check out my post about different air fryers and their accessories here.
If you’re looking for an XL one, I really like my Go Wise and it’s inexpensive.
How Can I Make Air Fryer Edamame Soy-Free?
Since edamame is soy, you could make this soy-free by subbing green beans for the edamame. Then use coconut aminos in place of soy sauce.
I recommend spicing them up with a splash of Sriracha or another chili garlic sauce.
Where can I get frozen edamame?
You can find it in your local Asian market, but these days it’s in the freezer section of your regular grocery store too.
Does Trader Joe’s have edamame?
Yes, they do and I like to grab a few bags whenever I’m there. You can even get the shelled ones if you want.
If you have a bag in the freezer you can make this in minutes!
How do I eat edamame?
The outer husk is not edible, so you want to scrape your teeth across it only to squeeze out the beans. Those are the prize you are searching for,
Simply place one edamame pod in your mouth. Using your teeth, slide out the edamame beans and discard the shells in a bowl just for them.
You can have a big bowl in the center of the table for all or individual discard bowls for each person.
