I’ve been loving sheet pan meals lately, and I’m excited to share this sheet pan edamame recipe! It’s a great option if you’re looking for a lower carb, plant-based meal. The edamame is high in protein and this dish is loaded with vegetables!

What is Edamame?

Edamame are soybeans, the same beans that are used to make tofu. Sometimes they come in a shell, which isn’t edible. But you can also buy it pre-shelled, which makes it easy! I get the preshelled edamame in the frozen section at the grocery store. I’ve also seen it at Trader Joe’s! It’s a great source of plant-based protein and fiber.

Sheet Pan Edamame Ingredients

  • Edamame– I like using frozen, shelled edamame. It’s easy to keep frozen edamame on hand and having it shelled saves me a lot of time.
  • Soy sauce– This adds a salty flavor to the sheet pan meal.
  • Hoisin– This sauce is slightly sweet and salty, adding lots of complexity to this meal.
  • Rice vinegar– This adds a tangy vinegar flavor that creates depth in the sauce.
  • Garlic– I like a hint of garlic in the sauce. You can substitute with garlic powder, if needed.
  • Sambal oelek chili paste– I love the unique flavor of this spicy chili paste but if you don’t have any on hand, substitute with crushed red pepper flakes, which will add heat.
  • Caulilflower– This is a great low carb vegetable to pair with the edamame.
  • Red bell pepper- I love the sweetness of a roasted red bell pepper.
  • Carrots– Sweet carrots add a caramelized flavor to this sheet pan combination.
  • Avocado oil- A little oil helps everything roast evenly and enhance the flavors.

How to Make Sheet Pan Edamame

To make sheet pan edamame, start by rinsing frozen, shelled edamame under cold water for 30 seconds. This will help the edamame thaw faster so it will cook more quickly.

Spread all of the ingredients onto a single layer across a baking sheet. You may need two sheets, to ensure a single layer. Drizzle with sauce, then roast in the oven for 20 minutes.

Substitution Ideas

  • I love the unique flavor of this spicy chili paste but if you don’t have any on hand, substitute with crushed red pepper flakes, which will add heat.
  • If you don’t have any rice vinegar, check out these rice vinegar substitutions to give you the same flavor with ingredients you probably have in your pantry.
  • You can mix and match the vegetables based on what you have on hand. Try broccoli instead of cauliflower or green beans instead of carrots!

What to Serve with Sheet Pan Edamame

If you want to bulk up the meal, try serving this with rice or quinoa! I love making quinoa in my rice cooker or Instant Pot for easy, fluffy quinoa without the fuss. You could also serve it with tempeh for additional plant-based protein. Try this tempeh recipe for a delicious way to round out your sheet pan meal!

How to Store Leftovers

Unfortunately, leftovers tend to get a bit soggy if kept in the fridge and reheated in the microwave. If you do want to reheat leftovers I recommend reheating on the stovetop in a skillet or on a sheet pan in the oven.
