After going on a taste tour to Iowa soybean farms with Best Food Facts and the United Soybean Board, I’m excited to share this new recipe for roasted edamame you can easily make at home. (Visit here to learn more about my taste tour.)

When I visit my favorite restaurants, one of our favorite appetizers is edamame. I have never made it at home until now. 

I absolutely LOVE hot honey and mixing spicy honey with shelled edamame seemed like a great combo. Turns out, it was amazing! 

Roasted edamame with hot honey is a delicious and easy low-carb snack.

What is Hot Honey?

If you’ve never tried hot honey, it’s fantastic. Hot honey is chili pepper infused honey, so you get a slight kick of heat flavor along with the sweet honey taste.

You can find hot honey at your local grocery store. I highly recommend getting a bottle for cooking or just drizzling over soft cheese such as goat cheese. YUM!

After testing a few different ways to make edamame, the hot honey roasted edamame technique in the oven was the tastiest. Best of all… it’s super easy with only a few steps!
