Have you ever ordered edamame at an Asian restaurant? It’s a wonderful appetizer that usually comes steamed in the shell with coarse salt on the outside. So delicious!
You can also buy frozen edamame to easily make at home. But one day, when I was craving a snack with a little more crunch and flavor, I decided to try something different.
That’s when I made this delicious roasted edamame with wasabi and honey! It’s a fun twist on traditional edamame that’s even easier to prep.
Do you have some frozen edamame hiding in the back of your freezer? Now is the perfect time to put it to good use!

Is edamame good for people with diabetes?
Because edamame has a low glycemic index, it’s a great option for anyone with diabetes. It’s also a good source of fiber, potassium, and other nutrients!
On top of that, edamame has a great ratio of protein to carbs to fat. In fact, it’s a popular source of plant-based protein for vegetarians and vegans.
These little legumes usually fit very well into my nutrition plan, which is why I love to enjoy them as a snack or side!
This roasted sweet and spicy edamame is a great dish to make on the weekend so you can enjoy it all week.
Simply store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I recommend eating within 5 days.
