Edamame and Bok Choy Rice Bowl

Makes 4 servings

  • 3 cups brown rice, cooked
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 cups frozen edamame (shelled)
  • 6 ounces (about 5 heads) baby bok choy, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

Cook brown rice in pot or rice cooker according to package directions. While rice is cooking, heat sesame oil in a sauté pan, skillet, or wok. Add sliced bell pepper and edamame, and sauté for 6 minutes. Add bok choy and soy sauce and cook, for an additional 4 minutes, just until bok choy is crisp-tender yet still bright green. Divide rice among 4 large bowls and top each bowl with one-fourth of the vegetable mixture.
