How To Make Quick & Easy Roasted Edamame

It is hard to find a snack that is both delicious and nutritious. Roasted edamame fits the bill!

This recipe only uses salt as a seasoning, but you can use anything you want…cumin, chili powder, and even parmesan cheese.

What is Edamame?

Edamame is actually a Japanese word. It is literally translated “stem beans.” It’s used to describe immature, green soybeans.

You’ll typically find them in the freezer section of your grocery store. There are lots of ways to make them. I love eating them roasted with salt.

Edamame is a complete source of protein. If you are on the keto diet, this snack will keep you on track and fuel your body.

Can You Eat the edamame shells?

No, you don’t eat the shells. This is why I always buy the shelled beans.

You can either buy it already shelled or take them out of the pods yourself. Hint…already shelled is much easier!

What type of salt is best for roasting?

I love using just kosher table salt. But you can use sea salt too.

When roasting edamame, how often do you stir them?

I take them out and shake or stir them on the cookie sheet about every 10 minutes. They have a tendency to burn if you forget.

They should look like this when they are finished…brown and a little puffy. They will be crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Yummy goodness!

  1. Loved it! I made this to add to an Asian snack mix and it was delicious. I think I might try tossing them with a bit of wasabi powder next time. Thanks!

    1. Yay! So glad you loved it, Katie! Great idea to add them to your Asian snack mix. Let us know how you like it with the wasabi powder.

      Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi Na!

      Great question! From my experience, you can do it either way – frozen or thawed (you can thaw it in the refrigerator overnight, but it’s not absolutely necessary). The cooking time may differ slightly, but you’ll be taking it out of the oven every 10 minutes to shake/stir them, so you can keep on eye on how they’re roasting.

      Enjoy and bon appetit!

  2. What is your recommendation for storage? Does it need to be refrigerated? I am hoping to make a batch to top salads, so curious on what you recommend!

    1. Hi Hannah!

      Great question! My name is Lisa and I am part of the Customer Care Team here at Ideas for the Home by Kenarry, and I am also a seasoned food content creator! My general rule of them is to add leftovers in an airtight container for refrigeration of up to 5 days. To reheat, I would place the edemame on a parchment-lined baking sheet and reheat for about 5-7 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

      Hope this helps!

      Best wishes,
