Edamame Fried Rice

Who loves edamame? Me! Who loves fried rice? Me! Who loves edamame fried rice? Me! And hopefully everyone else who reads this! I found this recipe some time ago and when I made it I of course didn’t take a photo. So the photo with this is not mine. The recipe also calls for one of my favorite (not!) vegetables in it, peppers. I of course leave it out when I make it. I’m trying to like peppers, I really am! I’ve actually started to eat roasted peppers in dishes and they weren’t so bad. So I guess there may be hope for me yet! Either way, this is a delicious recipe. Simple too. It works best with pre-cooked  cold rice too. I also use jasmine brown rice in this but feel free to use a rice of your choice.

Whenever I make rice I always make extra and freeze some just for recipes like this. And for those of you who have eaten edamame in Japanese restaurants don’t worry, you don’t have to shell all 3 cups needed for this recipe! You can also buy them already shelled. Simple again.

Make up a batch for the holiday weekend, it’ll be something different! Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:

1 tablespoon canola oil

2 carrots, shredded

1 yellow bell pepper, chopped

5 scallions, minced

3-4 tablespoons tamari or low-sodium soy sauce

3 cups cooked shelled edamame

4 cups cold cooked brown rice
DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrots, bell pepper and scallions, and stir-fry until just tender, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add tamari, edamame and rice, and stir-fry until combined and heated through, about 5 minutes.

Makes 4 servings

Meatless Taco Casserole

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Well here I am again. It has been quite a while since I last posted. But it took getting sick and staying home ‘resting’ to get back into my blog. I have missed it so much! I’ve missed all of you readers as well! Sorry for the long delay in coming back. I promise to do better!

Well a few weeks ago I bought a bag of Morningstar Farms Meal Starters. I got the Grillers Recipe Crumbles. I had heard so much about this stuff and after having had a bad experience or two with ‘Boca burgers’ in the past I was leery but I thought I would give them a try. I am so glad I did! Wow, I was completely surprised at how good this stuff was when mixed with other ingredients!  It’s 100% vegetarian, has 75% less fat than ground beef and is only 80 calories per serving (about 2/3 cup)! Even my husband liked it! I had first made it in chili (didn’t take pics of course) and then tried it in a taco casserole. It was so delicious! And filling! I also added my fave Shirataki Tofu Noodles as well, which gave me more fiber! I only used 2 cups of the stuff in the recipe and it really goes a long way. So if you were considering trying this, go ahead, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Don’t get me wrong, I will always love my ground beef as well, but this is a nice alternative!

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Grillers Recipe Crumbles

½ large onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, chopped

1-2 tablespoons taco seasoning (I used my recipe)

 1 can (15 oz) fire-roasted tomatoes

1 package Shirataki Tofu Noodles (fettuccine style)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

sour cream

DIRECTIONS:

1. Prepare tofu noodles as directed on package, set aside.

2. In large skillet add and heat olive oil. Add the onions and garlic and sauté till soft, about 5 minutes.

3. Add the “Crumbles” to the pan and mix well, cooking and stirring till heated through. Add the taco seasoning and mix well.

4. Add the can of tomatoes and mix well. Heat through.

5. Add the tofu shirataki noodles and mix well. Divide the cheese in half and add ½ cup into the skillet. Mix well.

6. Pour mixture into any shaped casserole dish and top with remaining cheddar cheese.

7. Bake at 350ºF for about 15-20 minutes, until cheese is bubbling. Serve hot!

Add sour cream to top if desired.

Makes 2-4 servings
