Green Power Bowl

Granted, this was not the most delicious of my Buddha Bowl series, but it packed the highest nutrition. Edamame, aka young soybeans, are a phenomenal source of protein and, when combined with mushrooms and peppers, have a very "meaty" effect. This edamame came from our farm share, raw and still on the stalk. I picked the shoots off the stem, blanched them for 5 minutes, shocked them in cold water, and then peeled the beans out. If that's too much work for you, edamame is available, ready to boil, in the freezer section of most grocery stores. You could even make the beans into little burger patties, and stuff with the grilled veggies between your favourite hamburger bun. For extra vitamines I laid everything on a bed of raw spinach, though any lettuce or steamed bitter-green would work just as well. The dressing is made simply by blending avocado, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper. This whole bowl was a little bit weird, and a lot a bit awesome.
