Roasted Edamame and Mushrooms: A Simple Vegetarian Entree

Balsamic vinegar or soy sauce and oil season this recipe for Roasted Edamame and Mushrooms. Try this as a hearty and satisfying side dish or vegetarian entree.

ROASTED EDAMAME AND MUSHROOMS

The first time my husband and I tried edamame, we didn’t quite know what to do with it.

He brought home unshelled, steamed soybeans as part of a take-out order so we didn’t have anybody to ask. We decided to chew the whole thing–beans AND shells like you might eat sugar snap peas.

As you can imagine, that didn’t go well. After some discussion, we called the restaurant to find out if we should consume the shells. Of course, we were told “no,” and we proceeded to enjoy squeezing/sucking the beans out of the salt-dipped shells.

That incident happened several years ago. Do you know how you can tell?

Because nowadays, we wouldn’t call the restaurant. We grab our phones or iPads and google it. Right?

Good-natured arguments and bets on disagreements are so outdated. I might miss the bantering back and forth if the instant gratification of proving I was right from the beginning wasn’t so satisfying. Never mind the times I am wrong.

What is mukimame?

Mukimame is a label for soybeans without their shells. You will see them in the freezer section of the grocery store. It sounds like less work to me, making them one of my new favorite snacks.

Microwave a bag according to the directions on the package. Allow to cool, then store in a Mason jar in the fridge.

Roasting edamame:

Steamed edamame is fun, but roasting takes this lima-bean-look-alike to a new level. When you bake the shelled beans at a high temperature, they take on a suntanned appearance. Roasting also intensifies the nutty flavor and somewhat chewy texture.

Meaty mushrooms bring an earthy flavor to the party. Marinate them with the beans in a soy sauce or balsamic vinegar (your choice) and oil mixture. Don’t worry. They won’t seem greasy at all as there is just enough oil to keep them moist.

I prefer this recipe as a side dish. But if you’re having a vegetarian day, it makes a filling entree as well.

My apologies for not specifying the exact amount of salt and pepper. It is a matter of taste. However, the balsamic or soy sauce you add to the marinade will also affect the saltiness.

    What a great idea! I love these from the freezer section, but roasting them with mushrooms is a terrific idea. Try them in a succotash! Waayyyy better than lima beans.

    Piper, Can you believe I have never made succotash? I love lima beans so I know I would love it with edamame, too.

    This looks and sounds so tasty! You think of the tastiest things! Though I wouldn't use foil with balsamic vinegar. As some are rather "vinegary", and I would worry about the reaction with the foil. But that's me.

    Good point, Nancy. I always use the silicone liners myself but people don't always have those.
