Crispy Asiago Edamame Beans

This afternoon we did something I’ve been avoiding for much of the week… we used the oven {the perks of a much cooler day}.  When I came across this recipe from allrecipes.com on Pinterest a little while back, I knew it would be right up my little edamame lover’s alley. We tweaked the original recipe just a tad, and it turned out great.

IMG 6852The best part is that it’s really simple.  Here’s everything you need: edamame beans, olive oil, fresh-ground pepper, sea salt, and some cheese (we used asiago).

IMG 6854First things first, run your beans under some cool water for a few minutes to thaw them.

IMG 6856Next, have your sous chef place them all in a large mixing bowl.

IMG 6864Add a drizzle of olive oil…

IMG 6865Your cheese…

IMG 6868A generous grinding of pepper…

IMG 6870And just a tiny touch of sea salt.

IMG 6871Then mix everything together.

IMG 6876Lay your beans out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (who doesn’t love easy clean up?!) and pop them in the oven, flipping them once about half way through.

IMG 6902Take them out when they’re golden brown and have a good crunch to them.

Crispy Asiago Edamame Beans

  • 1/2 a package of thawed, shelled edamame beans
  • 1/4 cup of finely grated asiago
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of freshly-grated pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well. Lay beans on a parchment-lined baking pan and bake for approximately 30 minutes at 400 degrees, flipping once about halfway through.  Let cool for a few minutes and serve warm.

Enjoy!
