this was another lunch delivery idea...hmmm...either way i just had to make it...a warm, creamy red curry with a kick of heat at the end, followed by the nuttiness of the edamame pop (as i like to call it)
in the curry was roasted mock duck, bamboo shoots, spinach, pea pods, red peppers and thai basil...simmering for about 20 minutes...and let's not forget the steamed jasmine rice....this is all making my mouth water as i write this....i am now going to wipe the drool off of my face and post the pics and recipes...
2 cans coconut milk
2 cloves garlic - minced
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp thai basil - freshly chopped
2 tbsp vegetarian fish sauce (use tamari if you don't have the fish sauce)

2 cups fresh peapods
1 cup fresh spinach - chopped
1 small red bell pepper - sliced thin
1/2 small red thai chili pepper - chopped

in a medium pot, cover your edamame with water and let cook until tender to the bite. approximately 10 minutes. remove from heat, drain and sprinkle with sea salt.
