Edamame (green soybeans) add protein and a creamy buttery element to the overall taste. Serve warm as a main or side dish or serve leftovers chilled for lunch the next day. Edamame are available in the frozen foods section of your supermarket.
1/4 cup (60 mL) tamari soy sauce
1/4 cup (60 mL) water
1 tsp (5 mL) natural sugar
2 Tbsp (30 mL) cold-pressed toasted sesame oil
2 cups (500 mL) cremini, Portobello, or shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 16-oz (450-g) package shelled edamame beans
4 1/2 cups (1.125 L) cooked brown and wild rice, combined
1 cup (250 mL) green onions, sliced
Sesame seeds (optional)
Combine tamari, water, and sugar in small bowl. Set aside.
Heat wok and add sesame oil. Add mushrooms and stir-fry 3 to 5 minutes until soft and most of the liquid has disappeared. Add edamame and stir-fry another 3 minutes.
Push vegetables to edge of wok and quickly add tamari, water, and sugar mixture. Add rice, tossing to coat. Fry until warmed through, then add green onions. Mix well for 1 or 2 minutes and serve hot. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired. Serves 6.
