I Love My Edamame!
Published on April 30, 2008
Here is an absolute MUST MAKE quick & tasty & ohhh soooo good for you dinner (with left overs for lunch!). I got it from this issue’s Vegetarian Times and tweaked it a bit….and even Hansel, who is a total carnivore, and rarely likes my veggie masterpieces….adores this dish. So with that said…print this baby out and RUN–yes RUN to the grocery store.
Edamame Brown Rice Bowls
1 cup brown rice (before you cook it)
1 16-oz bag of frozen shelled edamame
3/4 cup dried cranberries
4 oz. crumbled feta
20 pitted kalamata olives, halved
1 small bunch of cilantro chopped
2 Tbs olive oil
1 lime squeezed
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Whatcha Got To Do:
- Cook the brown rice in a rice cooker or follow the directions on the box. Turn on some fun music to sing and swing to while you do the rest.
- Bring 4 cups of salted water to a boil, add edamame, & cook until tender. About 2 or 3 minutes. Drain and run under cold water (the edamame–not you).
- Toss together rice, edamame, cranberries, feta, olives, cilantro, olive, oil, lime juice, & red pepper flakes. You are going to need a big bowl for this one! Also–don’t forget to throw some salt and pepper in threre…not too much, the feta and olives take good care of adding their own salt!
- Serve it to yourself, your sweetie, any close relatives, and scoop some in a bowl to take with you to lunch the next day!
