Edamame Rice

Edamame Rice

This recipe is convenient if you end up with a lot of edamame. It's easy to make in either an earthenware pot or a rice cooker. You can enjoy the aroma of the beans since the seasoning is on the lighter side.

Ingredients: 2 rice cooker cups' worth

White rice
2 rice cooker cups' worth (360 ml)
Dashi stock
2 rice cooker cups' worth (360 ml)
2 teaspoons
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
2 tablespoons
Edamame (boiled and removed from the pods)
about 1 cup
Packed mixed grains and water
1 pack and the instructed amount of water


1. Take the boiled edamame out of the pods and sprinkle them with a little salt (unlisted).
2. Mix the condiments into the dashi stock, and add your usual amount of water into the rice. If you're using a rice cooker, cook the rice as is.
3. When using an earthenware pot, cook over high heat until it comes to a boil. Turn the heat to lowest and cook for 6 more minutes. Turn the heat off and steam for 15 minutes.
4. Regardless as to whether you are using a rice cooker or an earthenware pot, scatter the beans from Step 1 on the rice when steaming so that you can steam the two together. Mix to finish, and enjoy!
