1. Make sure to use frozen edamame pods that have been thawed before using them in the recipe.

Storage Tips

If stored properly, this Spicy Edamame Recipe can last for 3-4 days in the fridge and up to 3 months in the freezer.

To store in the fridge: Place the spicy edamame pods in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag and place in the fridge.

To store in the freezer: Allow the edamame pods to cool completely and then transfer them to an airtight container or resealable plastic bag. Label and date the container/bag and place in the freezer.

To defrost: Remove the frozen edamame pods from the freezer and let them thaw in the fridge overnight. Alternatively, you can defrost them quickly by placing the frozen pods in a colander and running them under warm water until they are thawed.

To reheat: After thawing, you can easily reheat the edamame pods in the microwave by microwaving them on high for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Or, you can reheat them in a non-stick pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally until they are heated through.

Note: The garnish of green onions is optional and should not be stored with the edamame as they will become limp and lose flavor. Add the garnish fresh when serving.
