ASPARAGUS AND EDAMAME FRIED RICE

Red and white rice pan-fried with red onion and celery. Mixed with RED FORK Asparagus Skillet Sauce, then tossed with asparagus and edamame. Served with a Smoky Russian Dressing!

Makes 9-1/2 cups


I’ve bought frozen edamame before and the package instructions always recommended less time than it actually required to cook them till tender. I don’t understand why, but with WOODSTOCK brand that issue did not present itself. I like that. They cooked up quickly and tender, not mushy.

The same with the asparagus. I was surprised to see spears. I must not have been paying attention when Steve brought them home and I photographed them. Usually, I buy cuts. The spears were great. I just cut off an inch from the bottom of each stalk and discarded it after cooking them. Good flavor, good texture, good color. I’ll buy them again.

The asparagus sauce was a big surprise. Generally, I don’t buy packaged sauces; l make my own, but this was high quality like I’d get at an upscale restaurant. Impressive. Next time I’ll do the asparagus in the skillet recipe. But it worked well with this fried rice dish, and there was asparagus in the rice, so I didn’t veer too much from the original purpose of the sauce. Well done.
