Crunchy Edamame

I pinned this recipe months ago, bough the frozen package at Target the next day, and then let them sit in my freezer.  Wonderful.

But, during nap time, the urge to snack hit me and I instead of eating potato chips and hating myself later, I thought - hey I'll make those edamame thingies.


Yum!

You'll need:
* 1 package of frozen edamame (16 oz)
* 1 Tbsp olive oil (eye ball it)
* 1/2-1 Tbsp sea salt - half for before roasting, half for after (eye ball it)
* 1 Tbsp fresh grated parmesan - more or less to taste
* 1/2 tsp garlic powder
* 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper (you guessed it, eyeballs!)

Preheat oven to 400.  Thaw beans by running cold water over them in a colander for about 5 minutes (probably less)  Dry on paper towels WELL.  Be gentle when you blot them so you don't damage the little beanies.



Toss dried beans with the rest of your ingredients - saving out some salt and parm to garnish when they're done roasting.


Lay beans on a baking sheet in an even layer, grab a Diet Coke ice water, turn on Project Runaway and roast for about 15-18 minutes.


Let cool slightly before enjoying.


The perfect salty snack to satisfy the craving.  And this is coming from a Doritoes junkie.


And nap time is over.
And I had to share.

I actually have edamame planned for dinner tomorrow and all the other ingredients! I am so going to make it this way instead of just steaming or boiling them. Thanks for the recipe!

I love any veggie crunchy, and regular edamame hasn't been so exciting at the house lately. I am going to have to try these! I am pinning! Kari
