I got this idea when people always ask me “where is the protein?” I know every living thing has protein and I shouldn’t need to justify myself but I really like edamame and that is a clear answer. Edamame texture is a lovely crunch and the sweet tangy onions as well as the red pepper just add flavor to the creation. For an extra carbohydrate boost I added some crazy corn, mostly because I like it a lot.
For this recipe you will need:
1 package of shelled edamame
1 white or red onion (diced or sliced)
1 red pepper (diced)
4-6 cloves of minced garlic
8 oz of frozen corn
2 tbsp of bragg’s Liquid aminos or oyster sauce
1/2 a lemon (juice)
2 tbsp of cold pressed olive oil
Salt and Pepper.
Pour the oil into a wok and bring the heat to medium-high. When warm, add the garlic and onion and mix. The garlic should turn a light toasty brown about 2 minutes or so.
Add the Edamame, corn and pepper. Mix the contents of the wok by tossing vegetables. I like to use chopsticks.
Add the liquid aminos (or oyster sauce) and toss until pepper is desired texture. I prefer mine a bit crunchy so it takes about 3-5 minutes.
Squeeze the lemon all over the stirfry and add the salt and pepper to taste.
You can eat this alone or put on salads or rice.
Here was my finished product:
I hope you enjoy!
