Edamame Brown Rice Salad with Chard (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

Edamame—the immature, green beans from the soy plant—is one of my favorite go-to plant-powered foods. Super packed in high quality protein (17 grams per cup!), plus fiber, iron, calcium, and more, I include this food in my diet regularly. One of my favorite ways to use edamame is in salads, such as this Edamame Brown Rice Salad with Chard, featuring brown rice, chard, brown rice, and a sesame vinaigrette. It’s delicious served the next day, too!
