Small Bites #16 - Edamame


Edamame is our ingredient this week! Usually served in the pod, I wanted to find a more unusual way to prepare it. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com.

Crispy Edamame

"Green soybeans (edamame) are baked under a Parmesan cheese crust, turning a frozen food into a healthy snack!"


1 (12 ounce) package frozen shelled
edamame (green soybeans)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place the edamame into a colander and rinse under cold water to thaw. Drain.

2. Spread the edamame beans into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle cheese over the top and season with salt and pepper.

3. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is crispy and golden, about 15 minutes.

How simple could it be? I could only find frozen (or fresh) edamame in the pods, so it took a little time to shell them. The rest of the recipe was a breeze. And, best of all, it was really tasty!

Oh! I made only half a recipe because I ended up with about 6 oz of edamames after I shelled them. The fresh ground salt and pepper were good, but I would like to experiment with some other spices too - maybe some spicy ones.

Before Baking:

After Baking - they don't look too much different & didn't get too brown, but the cheese was crispy on top:

This looks so delicious! I love edamame and am definitely going to make this.

I hope that you and yours have a wonderful holiday and a very happy New Year!


These look like a yummy snack. I'd bet they'd be good on salad, too.
