Edamame Rice Bowl

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

Frozen bell peppers and onions add loads of flavor to recipes, but their texture can be a little limp. Chopping the veggies into smaller pieces and mixing them with edamame and brown rice solves the problem.
  • 2 14.4-oz. pkg. frozen bell pepper stir-fry vegetables, such as Birds Eye
  • 1 12-oz. pkg. frozen shelled edamame, such as Seapoint Farms
  • ½ cup shiitake sesame vinaigrette, such as Annie’s
  • 1 Tbs. grated fresh ginger
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice

1. Pulse frozen bell pepper stir-fry vegetables in food processor until coarsely chopped.

2. Coat wok or large skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Add chopped stir-fry vegetables, edamame, 1/4 cup vinaigrette, and ginger, and stir-fry 3 to 5 minutes, or until vegetables have thawed and released their juices and most of liquid has evaporated. Add rice and remaining 1/4 cup vinaigrette, and stir-fry 5 minutes more, or until rice and vegetables begin to brown. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Easy to make, quick, & tasty! I threw in some garden beet greens, and used a "royal" rice blend since that's what was on hand.

Delish! And so easy! Used a little extra dressing and happened to have white rice on hand, so I used that instead. Also, I was only cooking for me so I made a quarter of the recipe. It is super easy to reduce and still have all the other ingredients fresh for the next time I want to make it.

Made with rice noodles instead of rice and added some extra green beans, watercress and ponzu sauce. It was amazing!
