Wild Rice and Edamame Salad (Gluten-free)

Just realized it’s been slightly over 2 months since I posted anything – whoops!

It’s been pretty insane here, between Convention season, the upcoming release of Hedonistic Hops (Pre orders now available!), and development work on Beyond Flour 2.

I’m here with a new recipe now, though!

When my husband had to go vegetarian a few months ago, we started spending a ridiculous amount of time looking through local co-ops, trying to come up with ideas for him to get more protein in his new diet. At one point, we came across a ready-made wild rice and edamame salad that was SO good.. but could be better. I swapped out some ingredients, tweaked the dressing to be more to our tastes… and here we go!

Once you have the rice cooked, this salad comes together quickly and easily. It will last about a week in the fridge, but will probably be gone long before that. We were constantly snacking on it – it’s a bit addictive!

This recipe is inherently ALMOST gluten free – all you have to do to make it actually GF is to use a gluten-free soy sauce. Easy!

Enjoy!

Wild Rice Edamame Salad

Makes about 8 cups

2.5 cups prepared brown rice
2.5 cups prepared wild rice
10 oz shelled frozen edamame (thawed)
2 red peppers, chopped
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup sesame oil
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sriracha
1 clove garlic

Prepare brown and wild rices according to package directions, allow to cool before measuring 2 1/2 cups of each into a large bowl. Add edamame, chopped red peppers, and sliced green onion, stir gently to mix well. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients. Pour over rice mixture, stir well to coat.

Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

How many times have you come across a gluten-free recipe claiming to be “just as good as the normal version!”, only to wind up with weird textures, aftertastes, etc? Most gluten-free recipes are developed by taking a “normal” recipe, and swapping in a simulated “all purpose” gluten-free flour… whether store bought, or a homemade version. “Beyond Flour” takes a different approach: developing the recipe from scratch. Rather than swapping out the flour for an “all purpose” mix, I use various alternative flours as individual ingredients – skillfully blending flavours, textures, and other properties unique to each flour. Supporting ingredients and different techniques are also utilized to achieve the perfect end goal … not just a “reasonable facsimile”. Order your copy here.

Imagine chewy, delicious cookies that *everyone* will want to eat! Imagine BAGELS. If you’ve cooked from “Beyond Flour”, you already know that these fantasies can be reality – it’s all in the development of the recipes. Order your copy here.
