This sesame soy roasted edamame has quickly become a favorite "healthy food in disguise" for me. This edamame recipe is salty, savory, delicious and makes the perfect snack, appetizer or side dish. Less than 20 minutes to make - oh, and it's 4 simple ingredients.
This quick easy sesame soy roasted edamame is gluten free (*verify your brand of soy sauce and sesame seed oil are gluten free!*), low calorie, and an excellent source of; protein, iron and calcium.
I have always used frozen edamame for this and it works perfectly. First you boil then you roast! Start off by bringing a pot of water to a boil to cook the edamame. After about 5 minutes they should feel tender and some of the pods may start to open a bit, this means they are ready.
Pour the edamame into a strainer running cold water over them, and then pat them dry. Next, heat sesame oil in a sauté/frying pan (preferably one with a lid!) over high heat (almost until it starts to smoke a little bit). Once heated, add in your edamame pods to the pan and fry them. Once the pods start to char, add the soy sauce and keep them on heat until sauce is cooked in and pods are charred to your liking. Remove from heat and add a pinch of salt.
