About the Recipe

I am a big fan of edamame, the baby soybean. They are so brim full of good things - protein, fibre, folate, several vitamins and trace elements - that it is difficult not to like them. So when I am thinking of making a salad, edamame is one of my go to ingredients. I always have a pack in the freezer but I also grow my own. If you live somewhere the sun is bot too shy, growing little edamame plants will pay you back big time with one or even two harvests of beans.


110g green beans

1/2 small orange bell pepper (50g)

1/4 red onion (50g)

150g fresh or frozen edamame

1/2 tsp salt

for the dressing:

1.5 tbsp soy sauce

1.5 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tbsp veg oil

1 tbsp tahini (sesame paste)

2 tsp toasted sesame seeds


rinse all the vegetables

trim the ends of the green beans, then halve

slice the pepper thinly and then cut the slices in half

thinly slice the onion and soak in water for 10 mins. change the water once or twice, then drain

bring a pan of water to the boil, add the salt, cook the green beans & the soy beans for 3 mins, then drain

to make the dressing, combine the soy sauce, vinegar, oil & tahini in a bowl and mix well

back to your salad:

drain the onion using your hand to squeeze out any excess water

put the edamame, green beans, pepper & onion in a bowl and mix gently 

drizzle with the dressing, sprinkle over the sesame seeds and serve
