  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 204 degrees Celsius.

  2. 2

    Rinse the soybeans in water. Soak the soybeans in water overnight or at least eight hours.

  3. 3

    Dump the soybeans into a colander. Shake the colander to remove all of the excess water.

  4. 4

    Empty the soybeans onto the baking tray. Spread the soybeans around the baking tray so the beans are spread in a single layer.

  5. 5

    Place in the preheated oven.

  6. 6

    After 15 minutes, stir the soybeans to avoid them sticking together. Continue baking for about 30 minutes or until the soybeans are golden brown. Ovens vary, so expect a variation in time by five or 10 minutes.

  7. 7

    Remove the beans from the oven when they have achieved the correct golden colour. Cool the soybeans before eating. Spray olive oil and lightly salt the soybeans for enhanced flavour.

  8. 8

    Store the soybeans in a plastic zipper bag or a sealed container.
