If you want to get rid of the demons at your house or want to welcome spring, here’s a recipe for roasted soybeans:


For 4 portions:

  • 250 g soaked soybeans
  • 1 tbsp oil (vegetable, sesame or peanut oil)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari


  1. Soak the soybeans overnight.
  2. Drain and dry on a towel for 15 minutes.
  3. In a bowl, mix oil and soy sauce, add soybeans and marinate for about 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 175 °C.
  5. Spread the marinated soybeans on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for about 40 minutes.
  6. Turn them occasionally so that the beans can brown evenly on all sides.
  7. If they are crispy when you try them, they are done.
  8. Let them cool on a large plate.
