Did you know that edamame (also called green soybeans) are immature soybeans, picked while still green and sweet? They are as high in protein as eggs, milk, and meat. Also, they are very good source of iron, zinc, and B vitamins.
Coarse salt and ground pepper
3/4 cup long-grain brown rice
1 1/4 cups frozen shelled edamame
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
1/2 tsp. sugar
3 scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1. In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups lightly salted water to a boil.
2. Add rice, reduce to a simmer; cover and cook, 30 minutes.
3. Stir in edamame; cover and cook until rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
4. In a small bowl, stir together lime juice, vinegar, oil, and sugar until sugar is dissolved.
5. With a fork, stir lime juice mixture and scallions into rice.
