An addictive little snack/appetizer featuring my latest obsession, the Korean condiment gochujang! These Gochujang Glazed Edamame are super quick and easy!
Put a bag of potato chips in front of Asheley, and you’ll witness the second fastest now you see it, now you don’t magic trick of all time. What’s the fastest, you say? Putting some chips and guac in front of me. I’ll house them in no time.
The same is true for edamame. Asheley and I like to have secret races whenever (always) we order a bowl of ’em at the local sushi place. We’ve never actually said it out loud, but we shovel them into our mouths at an alarming and semi-disgusting rate just so that we get to eat more than the other person. Sick, I know.
And although a perfectly steamed edamame pod sprinkled with just the right amount of flaky sea salt is darn near perfection, I’m also a huge fan of hitting my taste buds with an intense flavor punch. Like, for example, these Gochujang Glazed Edamame.
Gochujang Glazed Edamame
- Total Time: 10 minutes
- Yield: 2 cups 1x
- 2 cups frozen whole edamame
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons mirin
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons gochujang (or more for spicier)
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/8 teaspoon ginger powder
- Cook edamame according to package directions.
- Combine remaining ingredients in a small skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced to a glaze-like consistency, abut 4-5 minutes. If it gets too thick, just add in a splash of water to thin.
- Toss in cooked edamame and stir to coat. Remove from heat and transfer edamame to serving dish. Devour immediately.
This is a great appetizer or snack for 2 people. Feel free to double/triple if you’re feeding a larger crowd!
- Prep Time: 5 mins
- Cook Time: 5 mins
I love the little food war. Sounds fun and I can picture it now!
This flavoring looks amazing! I’d love to try it. I’ll send you my address in exchange for some. 😉
Happy Monday Chris!
Hahaha you know it Melanie!
Hahaha…I love that you and Asheley race for the edamame title! We love edamame around here, but I just realized we haven’t had any in quite some time. Clearly I need to correct this problem…starting with this amazing version. #WolfpackFoodFights
Clearly you need to correct this oversight in the edamame department. Race your wife and let me know who wins!
I’m a huge fan of competitive eating! 🙂 Love dressing up edamame with Gochujang. Great post, Chris
Hahaha yes Bill! Let the games begin!
I’ve had edamame spirnkled with spicy salt and truffle salt but gochujang glaze sounds amazing as well!
Oooo that sounds fantastic too! I’m going to have to try it with flavored salts…. good idea!

These, seasoned popcorn and popovers are like my favorite snacks. These photos are sweet and I have never heard of gochujang so thanks for the new condiment for me to check out.
Dude, you’d love gochujang! Check it out for sure!

The hubster may just propose again if I make these for him! He adores gochujang.
Hahahaha thanks Jen!
I am always on the hunt for healthy snacks because I love snacking so much. These look fantastic! Just like the real deal. I will have to try!
Snacking is the best, isn’t it?!

I’ve never heard of gochujang either. Thank you! I’ll impress my friends with my new knowledge at our next get together!
You totally need to try it! It’s awesome!

Haha – Food wars are the best – aren’t they? Soon you and Ashley will have a third party in on this war – then it’s really gonna be on! The only advice I have as a parent is HIDE ALL THE FOOD – specially when THE FOOD involves these GORGEOUSLY gochujang glazed edamame!!!
They totally are Shashi!! Hahaha hide all the food indeed! I have to hide it now from Asheley! Add in a 3rd person and I’m going to have to get creative with my hiding spots!

I feel like you are always introducing me to new things, which I love! I’d never heard of gochujang until now! I’m so behind on the times! I do however, love edamame and spice, so I know I’d inhale these!
You totally will fall in love with gochujang! It’s so good mixed in to aiolis and such!
Wow…I didn’t think you could make edamame any better, but you just proved me wrong. I’d fight for these too!
Thanks Sandra 🙂
We are a huge fan of edamame as well, but we don’t have races hahahaha. I might be fun to have one to change the routine ☺. I love the simplicity of this recipe.
Hahahaha it’s probably better and safer that way… best to enjoy your edamame slowly 🙂
Dude, first off I have those same bowl. I think it’s a food blogger thing…
About gobbling edamame…I think I could be a serious competitor, especially when it’s this awesome!
Hahaha you know it! And I think we need to have a edamame eating competition to settle this once and for all!
Sarah & Arkadi
great idea for a glaze!
Thanks so much!
I love ordering edamame when we go out for sushi, something about the saltiness that keeps me reaching for more! I love this glazed version you made, I’ve never heard of gochujang until now. Definitely giving this a try!
I’m totally with you on the salty thing Danae! They are addicting!
These are brilliant, Chris! We absolutely love edamame and the gochujang glaze sounds amazing! My husband and son are always fighting over who can eat the most but with this spiced up glaze I would totally join in on the competition 🙂
Sounds like your husband and I need to have a edamame eating race!!

I’m convinced you’re a genius! What an absolutely stunning photo that first one is. I’m definitely drooling over here – love those fantastic flavours!
Can you tell my wife that? She seems to disagree whenever I try to tell her lol!
You’ve really upped the edamame game here (so to speak). GREG
Gochujang!? This stuff sounds so cool! I’ve never heard of it before! I love the look of these delicious glazed edamames!! They looks like the perfect appy!!
It’s awesome Ceara! Totally check it out!
Bahaha – I’m picturing the two of you at the sushi joint shoveling edamame into your faces with no conversation. That’s how we roll too;) Lucas would LOVE this spicy twist to edamame!
Glad to know we aren’t the only edamame hoarding people around!

I LOVE edamame, never thought of doing a glaze like this. Genius, Chris!
Thanks Ninj! Can you tell my wife I’m a genius? She disagrees apparently…
