Roasted Edamame

Hi!  Well, after neglecting my little blog for most of this year, I have a second post for you this week.   Edamame, also known as young soybeans, is a complete protein.  So, you can enjoy this super easy dish as a standalone or a side.   I do have a confession though, my inspiration did not come from returning to my cookbook collection, but rather from Pinterest.  I’m a new pinner, and completely hooked.  Oh well, whatever the source, let’s keep looking for inspiration and trying new things.   You can find the link for the original recipe at the bottom.  Here is my adaptation ....

1 (12 ounce) package frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt (or garlic salt) and Pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place the edamame into a colander and rinse under cold water to thaw and allow to drain well.

Toss the beans with the olive oil and then spread them in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking tin. 

Next, sprinkle cheese over the top and season with salt and pepper.

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


....alongside some roasted chicken.
