Baked Edamame

Baked edamame beans make for a delicious and healthy snack that everyone in the family can enjoy!

Edamame beans (pronounced eh-dah-MAH-may) are among the few plant-based sources of complete protein. They are simply young soybeans in pods and are harvested before they harden. When cooked they have a buttery texture with a sweet nutty taste.

This recipe is a fairly basic one but you can easily spruce them up by adding Italian seasonings, minced garlic or garlic powder. Mind you, they are delicious made as written. I have seen this recipe all over the internet for the past year or two and finally made them. My baking instructions are adjusted slightly to create the perfect golden brown.
These delicious little soybeans are best eaten slightly warm and are best eaten the day they are made.

Why Healthy

  • Edamame are a high fiber, complete protein food.
  • Soybeans are also a rich source of the B-complex vitamins folate, niacin, riboflavin and thiamine and vitamins C and K, as well as the minerals calcium, phosphorus and potassium.

    Hi – I’m a fan of both your and your mother’s websites. I was wondering with the Soba Noodle Salad if I could substitute Tahini for peanut butter as my husband is unfortunaly allergic to nuts. Would it alter the taste too much?

    Thank you for your posts.
