1 (12 ounce) package
frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
These are great! In order to make them crispy I baked them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. I also spread them out so they would individually brown nicely. Perfect! I will make this again and again! Tastes like popcorn vegetables! (but better than popcorn)
Update: I've lost count how many times I've made this. I should add that I don't thaw the edamame, but I just mix the ingredients together with the frozen edamame and place them directly into the oven. That might be why they always turn nice and crispy for me!
UPDATE: I've lost count how many times I've made this recipe! I ran out of parchment last night and I decided to add them to a pan coated with Pam. BIG MISTAKE! They turned out soggy, sticky and gross!!! DO NOT baked this on tin foil or directly on the pan. What a mess! This probably explains some low ratings on this dish. ONLY USE A PAN LINED WITH PARCHMENT PAPER:)
I had some problems that other reviewers also mentioned but with some changes would make the recipe much better. After the edamame are thawed I would highly recommend putting them on a towel and patting them dry. When wet they cannot crisp. I had to keep them in the oven for a longer time. I also do not recommend using freshly grated parmesan cheese or increasing the amount then. The edamame did not get coated like in the photo. These changes will greatly help the recipe.
I am tired of just steamed Edamame and was happy to find this recipe. It was good. I do think it is easier to mix the oil, garlic, and cheese in a large bowl then add the edamame, put a lid or plastic wrap on it and shake it up. It coats everything better and the cheese doesn't all end up stuck to the baking pan instead of the edamame. This is also good with fresh green beans, peppers, and/or onion slices.
Wonderful recipe! I love edamame and run out of ways to prepare them. I recommend stirring them halfway through to brown them evenly (mine stuck to the pan). I'll definitely make this again!
I love this idea, but mine didn't get crispy - more like chewy. But still taste-wise they were excellent! Made one batch as is, and another I used taco seasoning (wow, was THAT tasty!) Will play around with cooking temps and times to see if I can get the end result I was hoping for - basically drying them out a bit more so they get some crunch to them. Thanks for sharing!
This was our first edamame experience and I'm happy to say it was a very nice one. I did add some garlic and onion powders. The family really enjoyed this side, altho hubby thought he was eating lima beans. Go figure! Thank you Sophia!
My God these were amazing!! First bite into them they immediately reminded me of these french fries I used to order at a certain restaurant, with that perfect balance of crispness and chewiness. I only made a half recipe first time around, patted them dry after thawing, used garlic salt, fresh cracked pepper from a pepper mill, and rest of ingredients on list. I had to bake mine for around 22-24 minutes instead to get them to crisp up, but thats what made them have the perfect texture. Will definitely be making these again!
Hmmmm...did all the tricks, suggested by others...dried it well, baked longer...they stayed chewy, cheese started to burn...not what I was hoping for...
