Asparagus Mushrooms Edamame & Sun Dried Tomatoes in Balsamic Glaze

on May 21, 2012

I love this recipe so much.  It is filled with protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and TONS of flavor!

Edamame are actually immature, green soybeans.  I love them.  They are so versatile and super easy to add to all types of dishes.  They are  a favorite for vegans and vegetarians since they are a complete protein.  Edamame is also packed with fiber, B vitamins, omega 3 fats, iron, calcium and zinc.

This meatless meal is well balanced, easy and just plain old delicious.  I eat this as a meal for myself, but I make a chicken or pork dish to go along side it for my family.

Asparagus Mushrooms Edamame & Sun Dried Tomatoes in a Balsamic Glaze

1 lb. asparagus

1 package sliced mushrooms (I used shiitake)

1 cup organic shelled and cooked edamame

1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes (not in oil)

2 TBS olive oil

1 TBS balsamic vinegar

3 cloves crushed garlic

1/2 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

fresh parsley

  • Place all chopped veggies and edamame  in a large ziploc bag.
  •  In separate bowl, mix olive oil, vinegar, garlic, salt & pepper together with wire whisk.
  • Pour marinade over veggies in bag and shake until evenly coated (make sure to close the bag first 🙂 ).
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Place veggie mixture on baking sheet, top with chopped parsley.  Roast for 45-60 minutes, checking periodically to turn veggies and to make sure they do not over brown.
