Nourishing Edamdame Bowl

Nourishing, hearty and flavor-packed Edamame Bowl with a scrumptious Sesame-Soy-Ginger dressing.

These bowls are a great, satisfying meal. They are loaded with nutrients, have tons of colorful veggies, are high in fiber, and have a good dose of plant-based protein. Best of all, they are SUPER TASTY. I know this because John loved them, he kept saying how good they were, and he’s a junk food lover so bowls filled with plants are not his favorite.


This recipe is easy and quick. if you already have cooked brown rice in your fridge, it’s even quicker and the whole dish can come together in less than 15 minutes!

These Nourishing Edamame Bowls have leafy greens, crunchy red cabbage (a cruciferous vegetable with so many health benefits!), creamy avocado, chewy brown rice and an edamame salad that’s fresh, filling and delicious. Everything’s topped with an awesome Sesame-Soy-Ginger dressing. The mix of textures and flavors is INCREDIBLE, and I hope you love these bowls as much as we do!

* I don’t like the strong taste of raw onions, so I place the chopped onions in a small bowl and cover them with boiling water. After ten minutes, I drain and rinse the onions with cold water. Bye-bye pungent taste, hello delicious mild flavor.
** About cup uncooked brown rice yields 1 cup cooked brown rice. Cook rice according to instructions.
