Brown Rice and Edamame

Source: Everyday Food, March 2006

Ingredients

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup long-grain brown rice
  • 1 1/4 cups frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups lightly salted water to a boil. Add rice, reduce to a simmer; cover and cook, 30 minutes.

  2. Stir in edamame; cover and cook until rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. In a small bowl, stir together lime juice, vinegar, oil, and sugar until sugar is dissolved.

  3. With a fork, stir lime juice mixture and scallions into rice; season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Notes

Edamame (also called green soybeans) are immature soybeans, as high in protein as eggs, milk, and meat. They are also a very good source of iron, zinc, and B vitamins.
