Added grilled portobello mushrooms to the edamame, and grilled a cut of sirloin steak. I also had fresh, hot peppers from the farmers market, so I sliced and added them to the vinegar instead of wasabi, which added color and a lot more spice to the dish. I really like the simplicity of this dish as well as all the iron, fiber, and great nutritional value! Although I did a summer-take, I look forward to following the instructions more closely in cooler weather. If you're looking for recipes with more iron, please visit my blog: figswithbenefits.com.
