{recipe} Roasted Sesame Edamame Pods

I like eating edamame as a snack or appetizer, but boiled is just so blah. Since nearly everything is better roasted, I decided to toss some of the whole frozen pods with a couple of flavorful ingredients and roast them in the oven. This yielded a terrific snack that went from freezer to table in about 20 minutes flat.

Since it’s salty and savory, it goes great with a refreshing cocktail. Make sure to serve it with an empty bowl on the side for the pods.

RECIPE: Roasted Sesame Edamame Pods
serves 6-8 as a snack


  • 1 bag frozen edamame pods
  • 1 Tblsp white miso paste
  • 1 Tblsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tblsp sesame seeds (I like the black ones because they look cool)
  • zest of one lemon
  • salt to taste


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a half sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Pour frozen edamame pods into a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss with your hands. (You may need to “massage” the miso paste in a bit because it’s pretty thick, and it works well to distribute the seeds, salt, and zest.)
  • Pour pods onto prepared pan. Cook for 10-15 minutes, until just starting to brown in parts. Serve hot with a bowl for empty pods and some napkins handy.
