A few years ago, when beautiful London was my home, me and my bestie Carole used to take walks at lunch time breaks in central London.
When I say walk, I mean….I would usually drag myself along with her as walking is not one of my best talents.
But as you know me…I am driven by the promise of honest good food and since she knows London and healthy eateries like the back of her hand, I used to follow her lead for those walking and talking sprees.
We have explored and sampled many good food places and varieties together in cosmopolitan London – multicultural hot pot. The good old days!
One of our all time favourite was a Noodle bar, near the CityThames link station. Today I am replicating one of the dishes from their menu.
The Ginger Soy Edamame! My Spin on An absolute Japanese Classic starter.
A lightly spicy edamame stir fry. A truly amazing healthy recipe with an attitude and the beauty of this is you can do it in a flash … from wok to table in 10 minutes!!😊
Here, I’ll prove it to you🤓
250gm Edamame pods frozen or fresh (I used Tesco frozen Edamame Beans)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 thumb size ginger, minced
1/2 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tbsp Sriracha for cooking and a bit more to drizzle for garnish.
2 tsp soy sauce
Sea salt and chilli flakes to taste.
Coriander, Chopped to garnish
In a wok or pan, on medium heat, add the oil, Edamame, garlic and Ginger. Sauté for few seconds.
Add chilli flakes, salt and Sriracha sauce with a splash of water, stir and cook it covered for 5 minutes.
Garnish with chopped coriander and serve it warm as a starter!
These high-protein beans, need to be teased out from their pods with your teeth, are not only fun to eat but are extremely addictive too!
