Edamame beans are a great staple to have in the freezer. Especially for any vegetarians or plant-based eaters as they are a good protein source. I often add them to salads, stir-fries and pasta dishes to bulk it up.
1 bunch of noodles (I used buckwheat)
1 cup of edamame beans (I used frozen)
1 green pepper, cut into cubes
1/2 bag of spinach
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp tamari
1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp honey
1 tsp chilli flakes
2 tbsp sesame seeds
Cook the noodles accordingly to the instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
Put the edamame beans in a small bowl and pour over some hot water to defrost them.
In a small bowl make the dressing by combining the peanut butter, ACV, tamari, sesame oil and honey. Add some water to loosen it.
Add the noodles to a large bowl with spinach, pepper, and edamame beans. Pour over the dressing and mix well.
Sprinkle over the sesame seeds when ready to eat.
(makes c. 3 portions)
