Have you ever felt like you had a bowl of edamame and just couldn’t get enough?
Fun Fact: Edamame is a green vegetable commonly known as the soybean. It’s rich in carbs, protein, vitamin K, and fiber, which makes it a great addition to the lunch box.
Traditional fried rice uses peas. Here, we’ve replaced them with shelled edamame. Because it’s a great source of protein, this also makes a wonderful vegetarian meal. Feel free to add chicken, beef, or shrimp, if you prefer.
You see, it really isn’t that hard to make a hearty meal that gives your kids the nutrients they need to grow healthy and strong! I know many of you are always wondering if you are doing enough for your children’s diet; at least with MOMables, you can know you are for sure!
I made the recipe using Tamari—gluten-free soy sauce—but feel free to use regular soy sauce if you do not need it to be gluten-free.
Here at MOMables, we like to keep things simple. If you follow our easy steps about how to freeze rice, this meal can be prepared in a matter of minutes for dinner and leftovers served up for lunch the next day.
We like simple. Just like our menu plans!Print
