Roasted Soybeans

Salted Roasted Soybeans recipe using fresh soybeans.  This baked recipe is so easy to make! 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.    

Soybean recipes

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.

Soybean Edamame Pesto Recipe

Soybean Edamame Pesto, a easy and delicious pesto recipe using soybeans! Use this as a appetizer dip or serve over pasta. 

With all the soybeans we just picked I had one idea in mind – Soybean Edamame Pesto!

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!
Soybean Edamame Pesto, a easy and delicious pesto recipe using soybeans!

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!

Edamame Recipe

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.

Edamame is easy to make at home and tastes just like the Japanese restaurant! All you need is soybeans and salt!

Crispy Parmesan Wasabi Soybeans

Crispy Parmesan Wasabi Soybeans recipe

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!

Dried Edamame Recipe

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!

Cilantro shrimp and Edamame Beans
Print
Ingredients
  1. 1/4 pound shrimp, peeled
  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  3. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  4. salt + pepper
  5. 1/8 cup chopped cilantro
  6. 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
  7. 1/2 cup frozen edamame
Instructions
  1. Defrost Shrimp.
  2. Chop up Cilantro.
  3. Mince garlic.
  4. Pour olive oil in your pan on medium heat. Heat up until hot.
  5. Add your shrimp to the heated oil and heat up for about 3 minutes.
  6. Add salt/pepper.
  7. Flip each shrimp over to get the other side.
  8. Add minced garlic.
  9. Heat these up for another 2 minutes.
  10. Move your shrimp to a plate.
  11. 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.
  12. Add your cilantro on top.
  13. Then toss everything all around.
  14. Add your edamame on the side, or mix together with shrimp.
To Cook Edamame
  1. 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.
