Asian Salad with Edamame and Avocado

18 Feb

Sometimes I have no interest in eating anything but vegetables.  As much as I enjoy fish, there are days that my body says, enough! Today was one of those days.  I used to be be completely vegan, but had difficult time getting enough protein, because I have hard time digesting beans. This salad is built around soy protein and fat from avocado. I love Asian flavors, therefore l made Asian style dressing.

Salad

  • 1/2 cup shelled cooked soy beans
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 avocado diced
  • mixed greens
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 glove of garlic minced
  • toasted nori seaweed cut into strips
  • lemon wedge

Dressing

  • 1 tbs gluten free low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbs natural rice vinegar
  • 1 tbs seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp minced ginger

Sauté the garlic and mushrooms. Whisk the dressing ingredients together. Arrange the salad ingredients on a plate. Squeeze lemon juice over the avocado.  Top with the dressing and nori strips.

      I did not used to like avocado either. Get firmer one and squeeze lemon on it.
