a blog about a girl who decided eating plants was the way to go

I’ve been working my way through the Food Matters Cookbook.  And let me tell you, there are some fantastic recipes in there!

We LOVED these!

Edamame Cakes (from Food Matters Cookbook)

2 c. edamame
1 T. sesame oil
1 egg (or 1 Flax Egg:  1 Tbsp ground flax mixed with 3 Tbsp water)
salt and pepper
whole wheat flour, as needed

Bring a pot of water to a boil.  Add frozen, shelled edamame and cook for 5 – 10 minutes, until tender.  Drain (and reserve some of the cooking water.) Pulse edamame, egg, sesame oil, salt, and pepper.  Do not puree.  Add a touch of whole wheat flour to thicken or a touch of water to thin.

Cook in a skillet with vegetable oil or extra virgin olive oil, about four minutes per side.

Soy drizzling sauce
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 T. rice vinegar
1 T. sesame oil
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. fresh minced garlic
1 tsp. fresh ginger (or ground if you’re in a pinch)

Serve with brown rice.
