These addictive sugar-coated soybeans are a protein-packed snack, great for toting to the office.


  • 2 cups unsalted roasted soybeans
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. In a large nonstick skillet, combine soybeans, sugar and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Stir in sesame seeds and salt. Cook 4 to 6 minutes or until soybeans and sesame seeds are golden, removing from heat as necessary to control browning. (Liquid will evaporate and sugar will crystallize.) Spread on foil or baking sheet to cool.
