Parmesan & Wasabi Edamame

Parmasean and wasabi encrusted edamameToday we bring you something green and healthy. This is the time of year when I have to try and resist all sorts of delicous looking Easter candies every time I'm at the grocery store. It's hard to pass up a cadbury egg! So while I'm tempted by every color of Peeps marshmallows I thought I'd try to focus my kitchen efforts on healthy snacks this week. Behold: parmesan and wasabi baked edamame.Delicious and healthy snack optionsThese little guys are HIGHLY addictive. You have been warned. After snapping a few photos of these I stood staring out my kitchen window popping these in my mouth by the handful for probably about ten full minutes. Like a edamame eating zombie. (Which makes no sense because everyone knows zombies only eat brains. Duh.)Healthy snack ideasParmesan & Wasabi Edamame

2 cups cooked edamame (if frozen thaw beforehand)
2 tablespoons oil (I used olive oil)
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (from a shaker is best for this particular dish)
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon wasabi powder
salt + pepper to tasteFavorite secret ingredient-wasabi powderFirst coat the cooked edamame in the oil. In a separate bowl stir together the parmesan, flour, wasabi powder, salt and pepper. Sprinkle the flour mixture in with the edamame, tossing as you go. You want each piece to get coated in the flour mixture without any big clumps forming. 

Lay the edamame out on a baking sheet lined with a silpat mat or parchment paper. Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes, tossing the edamame half way through baking so that they get cooked on both sides.Baked edamame snackServe warm. These are best the day they are made but you can try reheating them in the oven should you have leftovers. I think these make a fantastic snack but I could also see them being served as a fun side dish. Enjoy! xo. Emma

  • YUM YUM! Wasabi is one of my absolute favorite flavors! Great looking recipe!


  • I love love love edamame! Great idea for a healthy snack but I might have to skip the wasabi or think of something to substitute for it. One of very few flavors I just cannot get on board with unfortunately.

  • Wow, fab idea 🙂 Great blog 🙂


  • Looks good! I’m intrigued by the parmesan and wasabi combination.

  • Yum! What a fun snack! Saw your instagram of the raw ones, so excited to see what you cooked up!

  • These look like a great snack. I doubt there would be left overs.

  • Parmesan, Wasabi & Edamame – OH MY! Three of my favourite things in one!? I am definitely trying this one!

  • ahhh… I googled it. Its a young soy bean. Never tried wasabi… maybe one day.

  • That looks soooo insanely yummy! But I don’t think I’ll be able to get my hands on some edamame here in Belgium. Have been looking for them everywhere but nowhere to be found.


  • Oo, I always buy it only and now I have a recipe. Thanks and have a nice monday.

  • I love edamame! Can’t wait to try this once I do some grocery shopping again 😀

  • Sounds great! I love edamame with just salt, so I’m sure the addition of parmesan will be an interesting treat! (^_^)

  • Looks like and interesting combination :).

  • OOo YUM I always buy the wasabi peas at the Asian grocery store! I think this seems “healthier” and definitely TASTIER!!

    Can’t wait to give this a try!!


  • Brilliant! I’ve always wanted to try wasabi peas but I HATE peas so I’m glad you’ve thought of a better alternative.

  • Oh my goodness all the girls at work LOVE edamame beans! They are a great Friday afternoon snack

  • yummm…and seriously the moreish type of snack too, I would be worried I would overeat these!!! Great for a party too!!


  • This looks so yummy and simple enough. I’m a little bit of a baby with spicy stuff though so I may skip the wasabi. Thanks for this 🙂

  • Those look unbelievable!! I’m not a wasabi fan but I wonder if they would work with just parmesan…

  • They look yummy! I have not eaten them this way before. Can’t wait to whip up some really soon.

  • I love, love love edamame any way. Yum!! This looks amazing.

  • mmm I love edamame I should have it more often thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  • What’s the texture like? Are they like wasabi peas? Can they be stored at room temp?

  • Looks so super and a twist on the usually recipe. Love it.

  • Healthy snacks are always helpful. They indeed look very addictive. I am excited to try!
