recipe: togarashi roasted edamame

20151022_160241

If you’ve ever gone for sushi, there’s a chance you’ve come across the warmed and salted soybean snack, edamame. I’ve taken them one step further with this recipe and used just the soybeans sans shells, tossed them in spices, and roasted them. Trust me, by the time you’re done with them, you won’t even know you’re shoving handfuls of beans into your mouth!

1 bag frozen shelled edamame beans

2 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp togarashi spice

1 tbsp kosher salt

1 tsp sesame seeds

1. Preheat the oven to 450F. Place the edamame beans in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with hot water. Microwave 6 minutes and strain.

2. Toss the beans in the oil and seasonings. Spread out on a parchment-lined pan and roast in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, shaking them up, and roasting for another 10 minutes til crispy. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve warm.


Notes:

– If you’re not a fan of sesame or togarashi, get your head checked! I mean, ahem… not to worry! These tasty little nutrition nuggets can be sauced up any way you please. You can find other spice mixture options in my previous post, essential spice mixes! Experiment with any one of them, or if you’ve come up with your own flavor creation, I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
