I just love edamame recipe, and today I’m sharing a SUPER quick and easy edamame recipe with you, something I call Edamame Stir Fry. And when I say quick and easy, I mean it! I’m talking on the table in 15 minutes or less {as long as your rice is cooked ahead of time. I cook a big pot of brown rice at the beginning of the week and keep it in the fridge for use during the week}.

This stir fry is a healthy dish that’s full of edamame, bell pepper, cashews! This would make a quick & easy lunch or dinner. This recipe proves that the combination of quick and easy AND healthy truly exists.

Cook’s Note – Edamame Stir Fry:

  • The Edamame Stir Fry will keep in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 4 days.
  • If you want to add some extra protein to this dish like chicken or shrimp, cook up the chicken or shrimp before the bell pepper and edamame in step 3. Then set it aside and add it back in with the rice and sauce.
  • If you want to make this dish more substantial add in 2 cups of diced chicken, steak, pork, or tofu in step 3 of the recipe below. Alternatively, you can also add in 2 cups of more veggies like broccoli, bok choy, green cabbage, sliced carrots, etc.
