Spicy Roasted Edamame

Edamame is one of my all time favorite snacks, and its so incredibly nutritious. I normally eat edamame right out of the little pods, sprinkled with a bit of sea salt. Don't you love it when one of those beans goes flying across the room at fifty miles per hour and smacks your toddler in the head? Good times.

Upon my recent mission of roasting every vegetable known to man, edamame was next on the list. If is is possible for it to taste even better, it does! It takes on a nutty flavor and a bit of a crunchy texture, which goes perfectly with the spicy coating. This one's a winner!

Spicy Roasted Edamame
  • 1 1/4 cups frozen shelled edamame, thawed

  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • cooking spray

  • Directions:
    Preheat oven to 400.
    Pat edamame dry with paper towels.
    Place in a bowl and give the edamame a few squirts of cooking spray and toss to coat.
    Add in spices and mix well.
    Spray a baking sheet and arrange edamame in a single layer.
    Roast for 20-30 mins, flipping a few times during cooking.
