This was so easy to make and tasted great.  And…. it was the first ‘recipe’ I made from scratch myself!

The edamame come out slightly crunchy and full of flavor.  The minced ginger are especially tasty.

  • 8 oz frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 T minced fresh ginger (essential!)
  • 1 1/2 T soy sauce
  • 1 T canola oil
  • salt and fresh ground pepper
  1. preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. rinse the edamame in a sieve under lukewarm water to thaw.  pat dry in a paper or clean dishtowel.
  3. in a small bowl, toss edamame with oil, soy sauce, and ginger.
  4. spread mixture evenly over baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. cook for 30-40 minutes, until they become golden, stirring every 10 minutes.
