Vegan Edamame Mushroom Stir-Fry with Roasted Sesame Seeds Recipe

Vegan Edamame Mushroom Stir-Fry with and Sesame Seeds
Edamame, or young green soybeans, are wonderful eaten straight out of the pods, and I love them with Friday night sushi takeout. I buy shelled edamame for recipes to save prep time. My taste testers sampled this dish and liked the meaty texture of the mushrooms, making it substantial enough for a main course, yet light as a side dish. You can serve it over brown rice with reduced sodium soy sauce or Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids. This is a great recipe for “going meatless” one to two nights per week. While I’m not planning on going vegan anytime soon, are any of you? I’d love to hear about your New Year resolutions for 2012.

Vegan Edamame Mushroom Stir-Fry with Roasted Sesame Seeds Recipe

4 teaspoons canola oil, divided

2 3/4 cups (192 g) thickly sliced cremini (baby bella) mushrooms (8-ounce carton)

1 pinch salt

1 (16-ounce, or 3 cups) bag frozen shelled edamame soybeans, thawed

1 cup (110 g) shredded carrots

1 teaspoon fresh gingerroot, minced (or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger)

1/3 cup (80 ml) reduced sodium or organic vegetable broth

1/2 cup (90 g) roasted red bell peppers, diced

1/4 cup (55 g) dried tart cherries, chopped small

1/4 teaspoon curry powder

1/2 teaspoon Sriracha garlic chili sauce (reduce amount for a milder taste)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon (9 g) roasted sesame seeds

2 teaspoons rice vinegar

1 teaspoon agave syrup (or substitute non-vegan honey)

1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large fry pan over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add the mushrooms, pinch of salt, and toss a few times to coat. Stir occasionally and brown 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook 4 minutes. When done, remove mushrooms from pan.

2. Return pan to heat, add the remaining oil, then add the edamame, carrots, and ginger. Stir in broth halfway through. Cook 5 minutes, until edamame is tender. Add the red pepper, cherries, curry, Sriracha, cooked mushrooms, 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, and mix well. Cook 2 to 3 minutes longer, until heated through. Remove from heat and stir in sesame seeds, vinegar, and agave. Serve hot or enjoy cold the next day.

    A reader emailed me and asked what could be substituted for rice vinegar. I suggested using white wine vinegar or Champagne vinegar. If that wasn’t available, try white balsamic or apple cider vinegar.

    Good luck!
