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!
One of the things I love about my air fryer is that it is so versatile. Sure, it makes the best crispy tofu and soy curls, crunchy blow tie chips, and even French fry Po’ boys. Air Fryer Edamame changes the playing field plus it’s an easy lunch or dinner!
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 a coconut aminos in place of soy sauce.
I recommend spicing them up with a splash of Sriracha or another chili garlic sauce.
Sesame, Ginger and Garlic Air Fryer Edamame
- 16-oz bag frozen whole unshelled edamame
- 2 tablespoon blood orange juice or regular orange juice
- 2 tablespoon soy sauce *or use coconut aminos to make gluten-free

- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon finely grated orange peel
- 2 teaspoon sesame seeds or 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

- Toss everything together in a bowl. Transfer the coated edamame to your air fryer basket with a slotted spoon, and save the rest of the sauce for later.
- Cook on 400°F (205°C) for 5 minutes, then toss and cook 5 more minutes. The beans will begin to brown a little and should be hot.
- Toss the cooked beans in the extra sauce and serve. Make sure to have empty bowls on the dinner table for the outside tough pods that you discard.
