Baked Edamame

I've been looking for some healthy snacks and this pinterest find fit the bill. I would make them again with some adjustments. First, garlic powder is a must! The original recipe was just salt, pepper, and parm. I guess I wasn't heavy enough with the salt/pepper because they weren't that flavorful. We sprinkled on some garlic powder and voila! Amazing. Definitely cook them a little longer, more like 20. If the edamame isn't cooked all the way it's a tad on the gummy side. Not all of mine were truly crispy so I changed the name from "crispy edamame" to "baked". I'm not sure there is a way to fix the coating because not all the beans were well coated with cheese. The ones that did have little bits of browned parm on them were to die for!
Baked Edamame
(Pinterest find, adapted from
1 (12 ounce) package frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Garlic powder!
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place the edamame into a colander and rinse under cold water to thaw. Drain.
2. Spread the edamame beans into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle cheese over the top and season with salt and pepper.
3. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is crispy and golden, 15-20 minutes.
