Roasted Soy Beans or Soy Nuts

roasted soy beans

I bought a packet of soy beans and was searching for recipes in the internet and came across this recipe. It’s simply soaking the beans overnight and roasting in the oven for 25-30 minutes.  As soon as I saw this recipe, I wanted to try the same procedure with some other beans also.  I had green mung beans in hand.  So I soaked 1/2 cup of each beans separately with lots of water and a teaspoon of salt.  Next day morning I washed the beans, drained the water and added some more salt and pepper powder and kept it for another 2 hours.  I first tried the soy beans, did exactly what was mentioned in the recipe.  I had to roast it for 25-30 minutes to get the desired crunch.  As mentioned in the recipe, be careful at the end because it tends to get burnt during the last few minutes.

My Notes:
Roasting green mung beans was easier when compared to soy beans.  The roasting time was very less; around 10-15 min is enough.  Personally I liked roasted mung beans.  But one word of caution, this has to be consumed on the same day itself, the next day it becomes very hard to bite.  The soy beans was good even after 2 days.

Variations:
1. You can add any seasonings you want, cayenne pepper, garlic salt, etc.
2. I think this method will work for chick peas (garbanzo beans), green peas also.  In that case you can have a healthy mixture of beans for snacking, which is rich in fiber and proteins.

        Funny thing, i’ve yet to find them in traditional grocery stores.
        And, when I have found them they are in cans and does not appear healthy.

        I finally found them in Chinese grocery stores.
