How do you make make edamame?

I wanted edamame, but I wanted it a little different, you know? So I minced up some garlic, cooked it with some olive oil and crushed red pepper. Made the edamame, tossed it with the olive oil mixture and lots of salt and pepper, and OMG, it was amazing.

So now I'm thinking, hey, maybe I've not fully realized the wonderful things I can do with this very healthy, fun to eat, podded vegetable (It needs the pod, doesn't it? It seems somehow lacking without it.).

So what do you do with it, outside of the standard cook and lightly salt? I'd love to see some interesting ideas on this.
