a.k.a. Spiced, Roasted Soybeans

In honor of Arkansas’s Soybean Month, how about a soybean recipe? We use soy products in a variety of ways throughout the year, but this time of year perhaps it makes sense to share one of our favorite SEC football gameday snacks: “Spiced, Roasted Soybeans! GAMEDAY EDAMAME!!”

Yep, like all of y’all, I serve wings, little sandwiches, chips & dips, and more as snack foods for the hubby while he watches football throughout the season, and I also serve spiced edamame. There are a variety of ways to season soybeans (a.k.a. Edamame) when roasting. Garlic and parmesan is pretty popular and so is this 6 season blend. My husband, Mitch, and our daughters LOVE the spiced, roasted Edamame! Here’s how I served it, today, during the Arkansas/Ole Miss game:

14 oz bag frozen, shelled soybeans
(a.k.a. EDAMAME)
3 Tablespoons VEGETABLE OIL (soybean oil)
1/2 teaspoon BLACK PEPPER
1/4 teaspoon CAYENNE PEPPER
1/2 teaspoon CHILI POWDER
1/2 teaspoon GROUND CUMIN
1/2 teaspoon GARLIC POWDER

1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

2)Place the thawed edamame into a mixing bowl, drizzle with the oil and salt to taste, then sprinkle with spices. Toss until the edamame are evenly coated with the oil and spices. Spread into a 9×13 inch glass baking dish or on a baking sheet with silicon mat (as I do) in a single layer.

3)Bake uncovered in the preheated oven until the beans begin to brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir once halfway through cooking. Enjoy!

It’s always fun to serve with a bit of pizzazz! These little pepper shaped dishes sure are fun and indicative of the heat from these spiced soybeans! Cute, right? 🙂

  1. Looks yum! I think the Hubs will definitely give it a thumbs up (he’s a spice fan).
