2 teaspoons Sriracha (hot chile sauce, such as Huy Fong)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
1 cup chopped shiitake mushroom caps
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
How to Make It
Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk; set aside.
Place quinoa in a medium saucepan, and cover with water to 2 inches above quinoa. Bring to a boil; cook 3 minutes. Add edamame to quinoa in pan; return to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drain. Add edamame mixture, mushrooms, and bell pepper to juice mixture; toss well to coat. Cover and chill.
Other people seemed to like this. I really did not. I didn't enjoy the dressing at all. It was kind of bitter, strong, and it tasted a lot of ginger, which is weird, because there's no ginger in it. I guess if you really enjoy ginger this is the dressing for you. The rest of the ingredients are good together. If you're making this for 2 people, make the amount for 4 people because it doesn't make a lot of food.
Really delicious and SO easy to make. While the quinoa was cooking, I soaked some tofu in the sauce and then cooked that too. I sauteed the mushrooms and peppers and ate the dish hot immediately after it was ready. One idea would be to add a bit of chopped walnuts for crunch.
