Easy roasted edamame (mukimame)

Make an easy side dish, appetizer, or snack using frozen shelled soy beans right from the freezer. You don't even need to thaw them first - just take them from the freezer right to the oven! I like to make a bowl of these when we have Asian inspired meals and put the bowl in the middle of the table for everyone to munch on and share while we eat. Even the toddlers will usually enjoy them this way (one usually will eat them very easily; the other will only eat the very roasty ones). Shelled soy beans are also referred to as mukimame (while edamame is generally used while still in their pods). I'm using edamame here as it is a more familiar term for most people. Either way, they are a simple and tasty snack! The outside gets golden and toasty flavored, while the inside stays creamy. I like mine topped with a fair amount of sea salt, but you can do this part to taste. You can also top them with some toasted sesame seeds for a bit of added flavor and crunch, and to compliment to toasted sesame oil.

Yield: 4 servings

  7. Amy , roasted edamame is utterly delicious. And, as you mentioned in your post, it's a wonderful snack when serving Asian food - around here the frozen beans are not easy to find and even my favorite Asian markets always quickly runs out of them but when I can get them I always do - your recipe looks wonderful!
