Recipe Tips

Frozen edamame in the air fryer are easy to make but have a quick read through these recipe tips so that you know what to expect.

  • We use frozen edamame in this recipe. There is no need to thaw them first either. If you have fresh edamame you can use them as well. Just keep in mind that the cooking time will likely be a little bit less.
  • The edamame should be green in color. If they are brown, this can indicate a poor quality.
  • When it comes to seasoning, we like to keep it simple with just salt – but you can get creative and add others.
  • Since every air fryer is different, you total cooking time might vary a little bit. Just watch for the edamame to have a light golden brown coating in places on some pods. This roasting will indicate they are getting close to being done or already done!

We use this air fryer for our recipes and it has been great.

When the air fryer is preheated, add the frozen edamame into the air fryer tray.

Gently shake the air fryer basket so that the edamame spread out into one even layer.

Some overlap is fine, but the air fryer shouldn’t be completely full.

Cook the edamame.

Cook the frozen edamame for 9-12 minutes until fully cooked. The edamame might have slight browning on the outside of some of the pods.

Shake the tray every 4 min during air frying to help with even cooking. Since every air fryer is different, your cooking time may vary slightly.

You can sprinkle a little bit more salt on top if desired.

Storage Tips

Air fried edamame from frozen is best enjoyed hot and fresh. If you have any leftovers, they can go in the fridge in a container.

Properly stored, they’ll keep for 3-4 days – but we’d recommend eating them sooner rather than later!

You can enjoy them cold or toss the leftover edamame in the air fryer to get them warm again.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound frozen edamame, unsalted (not shelled)
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (more to taste)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Meanwhile, add the frozen edamame, oil, and salt into a bowl. Toss everything together until well mixed.
  3. When the air fryer is preheated, add the frozen edamame into the air fryer tray. Gently shake the air fryer basket so that the edamame spread out into one even layer. Some overlap is fine, but the air fryer shouldn't be completely full.
  4. Cook the frozen edamame for 9-12 minutes until fully cooked. The edamame might have slight browning on the outside of some of the pods. Shake the tray every 4 min during air frying to help with even cooking. Since every air fryer is different, your cooking time may vary slightly.

Notes

  • This is not the traditional way to prepare edamame but it works very well.
  • If desired, you can also add other spices besides salt - but we like to keep it simple.
  • You're not supposed to eat the pods. Instead, squeeze the beans out of the pods.
