As we move into spring, the days are getting longer, but yet, it’s still quite cold and many of us don’t feel like having a regular salad and want something warmer.
So, for those of you who want to have more of a plant based diet, which is nutritious and delicious, I have a quick, easy and simple warm edamame cabbage salad that you can make for lunch or dinner.
It’s colourful with the vibrant mix of colours and also a balanced meal as edamame is an excellent source of protein.
You have to try this satisfying and delicious salad.
Warm edamame and cabbage salad recipe
3 cups shredded purple cabbage
2 cups edamame beans (cooked)
2 cups pepper sticks
2 cups carrot sticks
1 small avocado, diced
½ tsp sesame seeds
¾ tbsp olive oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
¼ tsp dried thyme
Chili flakes to taste
Sea salt to taste
Heat a large pan and add in the olive oil and then let the oil heat a little, then add in the mustard seeds and let them pop. Then mix in the cabbage and cover with lid and let it cook for 2 minutes.
Then add in the carrot sticks and 2 tbsp water and mix. Cover with lid and let it cook for another 2 minutes.
Next mix in the peppers and then cover and let it cook for a minute.
Then add in the edamame beans and mix in the spices and cover and let this cook for 3-4 minutes. If you want it crunchier you can cook for less time.
Spoon into a bowl and layer the avocado and sesame seeds over.
