1/1 Photo of Roasted Soy Nuts
A great high fiber, high protein snack. I can munch on these all day! They are also great on a salad to give some extra crunch. Preparation time does not include the soaking of the beans.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Soak beans in water 8-12 hours. Be sure to use enough water, as the beans will expand to about 3 cups.
- 2Rinse the beans and blot lightly with paper towel. They don't need to be dry, just not dripping wet with water.
- 3Sprinkle olive oil over the beans and toss lightly to coat. I do this right in the colander that I used to drain the beans.
- 4Sprinkle salt and cajun spice over the beans and continue to toss until coated.
- 5Spread the beans on a baking sheet in a single layer.
- 6Bake at 350F, stirring after 15 minutes. Stir beans and return to oven, baking and stirring every 5 minutes until soybeans are golden brown and crunchy. The amount of time to attain crunchy soy nuts will depend on the moisture of the soaked beans. It usually takes mine a total of 25-45 minutes. That's a big range, I know, but every batch is different is all I can say! Watch them carefully toward the end to make sure that they don't burn. Conversely, you definitely don't want to under-roast them either, or they will have a chewy consistency. They should be nicely browned, like in my picture.
- 7Cool the beans and enjoy!
