Salted Roasted Soybeans recipe using fresh soybeans. This healthy baked snack recipe is so easy to make!
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, soybean 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.
This pesto is delicious and tastes ultra fresh. If you have a bunch of soybeans and don’t know what to do with them then it’s even better as this pesto freezes amazing for months so that means you can have some of your Summer harvest in Winter – one of my favorite ways to enjoy dinner!
The main ingredients in this pesto are soybeans, almonds and garlic. Many pesto recipes call for pine nuts but have you seen the price of them? Yikes! No thanks! I stick with almonds that are just a few dollars and last me multiple batches of pesto. The recipe only calls for 1/4 cup almonds so a $4 container of them can make quite a bunch of pesto!
This Homemade Salted Edamame recipe tastes just like your favorite Japanese restaurant. This healthy recipe takes 15 minutes and requires 2 ingredients. Make it as a side dish or a snack!
Who’s ready to pop a few soybeans right in their mouth?
Ok, me too! Grab a few soybeans and let’s get snacking!
I love edamame. I went through this phase where every time I ordered sushi I also ordered a big bowl of edamame to go with it. Then I got to thinking, why don’t we grow our own soybeans? So we bought some seeds, planted them in our containers and BOOM! SOYBEANS! Ok maybe it wasn’t that instant, but it was pretty much that easy. Since the beginning we’ve had lots of luck growing soybeans in containers. This year they have grown to new heights and soon they will be all picked to be frozen and enjoyed for many happy edamame snacking sessions.
What’s edamame best with? Just a little bit of salt. That’s it. Beans and salt. Just a few ingredients makes one of the most delicious and healthy snacks you can eat.
Is it easy to make edamame? Yes! All you do is boil the soybeans for a few minutes, drain and you’re set.
Sprinkle a little sea salt on top and hello gorgeous! I’m going to eat you!
Then start nibbling away. They’re healthy and addictive. That’s a pretty happy match, don’t you think?
Lately I’ve been craving healthy snacks – peas, almonds, crispy soybeans and plenty of fruits. Raspberries tend to disappear quickly when I’m near them, I can easily eat one of those small little pints for a snack which leaves it as a expensive snack but so worth it. Why can’t raspberries be cheap? I’m constantly on the lookout for them on sale. There’s a market near me that they’re occasional on sale at and when they are, I get hearts in my eyes and skip home (with raspberries in hand). What’s your favorite berry? We grow a bunch of strawberries in the garden but I’m thinking we need to start growing raspberries next year!
Soybeans are one of my other favorite snacks and even better when I can make them straight from the garden! Within 30 minutes you can enjoy crispy Edamame soybeans! And trust me, they will make you snack happy! I could snack on these all day, actually sometimes I do!
EASY to make dried edamame recipe using soybeans! This healthy edamame is slow roasted and salted! If you’re growing soybeans this year you need to make this snack!
I love soybeans so I love dried edamame!
I think I start every post with “I love (insert something”).
I love cheese. I love cats. I love donuts. I love snowmen. I love pumpkins. I love you.
But soybeans, yeah, I love them guys. We had a great soybean year and it’s still going on with more plants to pick. The last few days have been chilly and windy but the garden calls, so I throw on a hat and a dramatic attitude (“I’m so cold! I’m not going to survive!”) and get picking soybeans.
Look at this beautiful soybean plant!
So with so many soybeans – what’s a girl to do? Snack on them of course! I know, dried snacks aren’t usually the first thing you think of when you think soybeans. You might think of fresh edamame which is absolutely delicious, but I wanted something to crunch, something with a little salt on it. So say hello to my dried edamame recipe!
Pour olive oil in your pan on medium heat. Heat up until hot.
Add your shrimp to the heated oil and heat up for about 3 minutes.
Flip each shrimp over to get the other side.
Add minced garlic.
Heat these up for another 2 minutes.
Move your shrimp to a plate.
Add your lime juice. Since lime is intense I like to add 1/8 tsp and keep building up by adding a little bit more at a time.
Add your cilantro on top.
Then toss everything all around.
Add your edamame on the side, or mix together with shrimp.
To Cook Edamame
Edamame are young soybeans. The beans are young and green when they are picked, so they are soft when you eat them. To make them just simply bring water to boil, add your beans and some salt and then continue to boil for 5 minutes. Drain and serve. I don’t even put anything on top of them, they’re that good by themselves.
