  1. Bring the water and garlic to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Stir in the edamame, and cook until the edamame are hot, and the liquid has nearly evaporated, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-high and stir in the teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, and sesame oil. Stir constantly until the sauce has thickened and coats the edamame, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.

This one was pretty good. I did it slightly differently: To the sauce I added an additional tablespoon of cornstarch, mirin and soy sauce. I also sauteed the edamame and garlic in a bit of olive oil for a few minutes, instead of water. Tasted good, thanks for a different way to eat edamame.

I made this recipe to eat as a snack (refrigerate and munch on later). I didn't use the whole beans in the pod as the one picture showed, but the unpodded beans. The sauce was a bit runny so we had to add cornstarch to thicken it up. The sauce was a bit overpowering for the beans, but overall it worked pretty well.

The flavour of this was really good, but the pod was a bit tough for me. I'll make again using shelled edamame.

This recipe was very good! I added extra garlic, teriyaki, and brown sugar to the mixture and it was yummy! I served the Edamame with Basmati White Rice and Pork Tenderloin marinated in Teriyaki and Brown Sugar. The rice was also very good when I drizzled the edamame sauce over it! Great Recipe, thanks!

I have never used edamame before so I was looking for something with ingredients I had on hand. Also the frozen edamame I bought was already shelled. This recipe was great. My husband had a second serving and an additional tiny serving. I followed the recipe exactly and I will make it again. Thanks for sharing!

This is an excellent recipe! I did not have the rice vinegar so I just used a dash of red wine vinegar instead and I also use the already shelled frozen edamame (not in the pod).

I love edamame and this recipe was a nice change for the same way I always make. Instead of terriyake sauce I used reduced sodium soy sauce and halved the amount to cut even more sodium. I also used Splenda instead of brown sugar and once it was ready I realized I was out of sesame seeds. This can be a healthy recipe if you are careful with the amount of sodium. Also great source of protein.

I served this as an appetizer during a Japanese themed dinner party. They were a big hit! However, I did make a couple of substitutions. Instead of Teriyaki sauce, I used 'Soy Vey' brand hoisin sauce (one of my favorite sauces of all time), and used balsamic vinegar instead of rice vinegar. Though I used a couple of unlikely ingredients, it turned out just fantastic!
