Roasted Salted Soybeans recipe using fresh soybeans. These are perfect for healthy snacking!
A few years ago I learned how easy it is to grow soybeans in your garden. They tend to be one of those plants where you plant a seed, don’t do much else and suddenly you have beans galore to pick. Soybeans can be used in many recipes, including fresh edamame, pesto for pasta/dip. For this harvest I wanted to use some of our soybeans for a roasted healthy snack, something where I can throw a bunch in a bag and enjoy at my desk at work or a road trip. I love guilt free snacking so I love these Roasted Salted Soybeans.
First you have to remove each bean from it’s pod. This takes some time if you have lots of soybeans. Removing the beans when the shells are still wet makes it easier. Keep the beans. Compost/discard the pods. Blot the beans with paper towels to remove any excess water.
You’ll want to roast these soybeans at 350 degrees from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours. The time varies so much because it depends on how wet they are, the amount, etc. Mine took 1 hour, 15 minutes.
For any you don’t eat immediately, store in a mason jar in your cabinet. They stay good for quite a long time.
