Roasted Siracha-Lime Soybeans
Makes about 2 ½ cups of beans
Takes about 1 hour (not including soaking)
These make a great snack with a lot of protein and pack a flavor punch to boot. I started making these to kick my pistachio habitat (too expensive). They are super easy to make and since dry soybeans rarely cost more than $1.50/lb, it’s a very cheap snack if you’re on a budget.
1 ¼ cup dry soybeans
1 tbsp siracha
1 tbsp olive oil
1 ½ tsp lime juice
¾ tsp smoked paprika
1. Soak the soybeans overnight. Make sure to add a lot of water since they swell to a large size.
2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
3. Drain the soybeans and remove any loose skins (these burn). Spread them out on a baking sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes or until shrunken and lightly brown. Use a spatula to move beans around around 15 minutes or so to ensure even cooking.
4. Meanwhile, combine the siracha, oil, lime juice, and paprika in a bowl. Mix.
5. Add the soybeans into the other ingredients and stir to coat. Spread them back out on the baking sheet and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
6. Allow soybeans to cool before serving or storing. If beans start to get soft and lose their crunch after a couple of days, pop them back in the oven for a few minutes and they should crisp up again.
