Introduction: Roasted Edamame

Picture of Roasted Edamame

Roasting edamame is my new favorite thing! When you roast the edamame, you get an entirely different flavor - much different than steaming and boiling.

The roasted edamame turns out a little firmer in texture and ends up with a smoky flavor that I really really love. You can also impart more flavor this way and add all kinds of spices to the mix. Spiced roasted edamame is a really great compliment to a steak or chicken main. :D

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
  • 16 oz edamame in pods, thawed from frozen or fresh.
  • salt & seasonings of choice
  • olive oil

You'll also need an oven preheated to 425 F.

I just use salt and pepper to season, but paprika, lemon, and chili are all great options too. :D

Step 2: Prep

Dry the edamame with paper towels and put it on a large baking sheet. Toss with a little olive oil and some salt along with whatever else you'd like.

You'll want to use a couple pinches of salt - more than you'd think! Since we won't be eating the pods the extra salt won't hurt. :)

Step 3: Roast!

Roast the edamame pods for 15-20 minutes, or until the pods begin to brown quite a bit and the edamame are soft inside.

Let them cool for a couple minutes then enjoy. :D
