Green Soybeans and Egg Fried Rice

Green Soybeans called “Edamame” in Japanese is a very popular bite to eat with beer in summer time. It is an immature soybean and is full of nourishment. Green soybeans internationally got attention as healthy food and is fairly easy to get at Asian groceries here in Australia. You usually find them in the frozen section.

This super easy recipe is great for lunch or a lazy dinner on Friday nights;) The key is to mix the rice and beaten eggs before throwing them into a frying pan so that the rice is mixed well with the eggs. The secret ingredient is the vegetable stock. If you like a soy sauce base flavour, then use a couple of table spoons of soy sauce and one sachet of Dashi instead of salt and vegetable stock. When you add the soy sauce, pour it into the frying pan not onto the rice so that you get a nice flavour and the rice doesn’t get soggy.
