Roasted Edamame

Looking for a crunchy, savory snack? Say good-bye to unhealthy potato chips and yes to these delicious little crunchy gems of goodness!

Edamame beans are the young and tender soy beans that can be eaten fresh, straight out of the pod. They are high in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals and anti-oxidants and make a great snack. Here I have roasted them into a spicy, crunchy delight, guaranteed to satisfy your savory cravings! These roasted edamame are easy to make, very cost effective (they cost a fortune in the grocery store for the same simple product) and are a very healthy go to. Season them with your fave spice blend.

  • Cleanse program friendly


  • 2 cups thawed edamame, whole beans no shell
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp spice of choice (taco, BBQ, cajun, chilli, etc)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Thaw 2 cups of frozen edamame in a strainer for at least 1/2 hour. Can rinse with warm water to speed up process. Ensure water has been shaken out as best as possible or pat dry with a clean tea towel.
  • Pre-heat oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Toss thawed beans in a mixing bowl with olive oil, seasoning, salt and pepper and coat evenly.
  • Turn onto baking sheet and place in oven
  • Set timer for 20 minutes then remove and stir.
  • Return to oven for 15 minutes and stir again.
  • Turn off the oven but return the baking sheet and let them sit in the oven until every thing has cooled.
  • They should come out perfectly crunchy and not soft in the middle at all.

Please watch your beans! These are estimated times so they may need a minute more or less, they can go to under cooked to perfect to over cooked in a short period of time.

If you collect the little moisture packs from store bought items, these can be place in with your beans in an air tight container for best storage. I leave them cover in a bowl on the counter but they don’t last long enough to go stale!

Consider doubling the recipe.

Consider making a batch of roasted chickpeas and throw them together for a super healthy protein snack combo!

  1. I had forgotten about edamame beans so going to put them on my grocery list. Definitely want to try this recipe. .

    1. They are so yummy! And, if you throw one of the moisture packs in with them, they last a good long time! Enjoy!
