Roasted Edamame Recipe



By Rebecca Garcia


Thanks to Victoria Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow, edamame beans are becoming popular fast as healthy snacks for dieters. These protein packed baby soybeans are similar to green beans, and is said to be the only vegetable that contain all 9 essential amino acids. It is also an excellent source of fiber, Vitamin C and folic acid.


There are several ways to cook edamame. You can steam them in the pod and salt, or shell and toss edamame into salads or soups. And, if you love crunchy snacks and want something lower in fat but higher in fiber, try roasting edamame in the oven, or skillet.


This healthy roasted edamame snack recipe is very delicious and super easy to make. It takes merely 5 minutes to prepare, and 15 minutes to cook!

How to Make Roasted Edamame


8 ounces frozen edamame beans* (do not thaw)
1 teaspoon olive oil

½ teaspoon kosher salt


Preheat the oven to 400˚F.

Toss the edamame beans with olive oil and kosher salt until evenly coated.

Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking until the beans begin to brown.

Serve warm. To eat, pop peas out of pods with your fingers.


If you like spicy roasted edamame, sprinkle ½ teaspoon chili powder, ¼ teaspoon dried basil, ¼ teaspoon onion powder, ¼ teaspoon ground cumin, ⅛ teaspoon paprika, and ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper over them. Toss until well coated and place it in the oven to bake.



Skillet-Roasted Edamame Recipe

If you don't have an oven, heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat. Toss in edamame, half at a time, and roast.

Flip the beans with tongs, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl, and toss with seasonings.


*You can find bags of frozen edamame, shelled or in the pod, in most Asian markets, health food stores, or local supermarkets.
