Shelled edamame (soybeans), aren’t just for Asian dishes. Here, they add fresh, subtle flavor to a warm rice salad studded with dried cranberries and olives. For a speedier supper, use instant brown rice in the recipe.
Bring 1 1/4 cups water to a boil, stir in rice, and season with salt. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 45 minutes, or until rice is tender.
Bring 2 cups salted water to a boil, add edamame, and cook 2 minutes, or until tender; drain and set aside.
Toss together rice, edamame, cranberries, feta, olives, cilantro, olive oil, lime juice, and red pepper flakes in large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
