星期一快乐！希望每个人都度过了美好的日子！我们只是包裹了一个super周末充满了儿童派对，结束了整个鹦鹉坐着的一周（非常奇怪）。是的，您确实读了正确的！对于那些跟随我的人Instagram，，，，you may have seen little Ella perched on my tea-cup or nestled inside my shirt – she belongs to great friends who were vacationing in Mexico and we had a lovely time together indeed
今天的食谱来自我favouri之一te ways to create recipes – using colour as my inspiration. I can often be found daydreaming about new ideas, whether for the garden, for an outfit, or most likely scheming up a new food combination based on colours that go beautifully together.
With this time of year being what it is and the darkness that fills our mornings & evenings, a little pop of colour in your salad bowl is a wonderful way to bring a smile to your face and a beautiful vision to your eyes. You know what they say about first impressions right? Well, this dish aims to please with its bright pop of orange & green right up front.
Roasted Yam & Edamame Salad:
(1) extra large orange yam, or 2 small, peeled & chopped (4 cups chopped)
(2) tbsp olive oil for roasting
(1.5) cups shelled edamame (fresh soybeans found in the freezer section)
(2) stalks celery hearts, or 1 large stalk of celery, minced
(2) green onions, minced
(1/4) cup cilantro, minced
Heat your oven to 400 degrees and lightly oil a flat baking tray. Prepare the sweet potatoes by peeling & chopping into a 1-2 inch dice. Toss with olive oil & salt for roasting, and put in the pre-heated oven. Bake for 20 minutes, and then flip them to prevent sticking and promote even roasting & browning. After tossing, roast for a further 15-20 minutes, until soft & browned. Remove from heat and add to a mixing bowl.
While the yams cook, put up the frozen edamame in a small saucepan with enough cold water to cover. Bring the water to a boil, and once boiling, turn the heat down to medium high and cook, covered for 4-5 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain.
当豆子冷却和山药煮时，准备芹菜，绿洋葱和香菜并放在一旁。准备the dressing在你的搅拌机和预留(这道菜enough for a batch or two of marinated kale so be sure to pick up a few bunches of green kale too!).
Once the yams are cooked, allow them to cool for 3-4 minutes before adding 2 tablespoons of the dressing to them while still warm (but not hot). Toss very gently to incorporate and coat the warm yams. After a few minutes, combine all of the ingredients, using less or more dressing as desired. Season to taste with salt & pepper and serve right away.
Serve this dish on its own with a bed of fresh greens, or keep it in the fridge to toss with warm grains such as brown rice or quinoa. Full of protein, natural carbs from the yams, as well as vitamins & minerals, this dish is one stop shop for great nutrition and clean sustenance. I also recommend mixing leftovers into your marinated kale – a great combo as well and this dressing is a classic with the lemon & fresh ginger.

This looks all so amazing! I can’t wait to try this..
I’ve been neglecting instagram of late… hmm. I’ve never tried a soybean – I should rectify that. My recipes just come to me, it’s a bit strange really :D. Nice stuff, Shira.
Thanks Nick! A guy like you…I can see that, like magic! See you on Instagram soon!
Love edamame, love sweet potatoes. So this combination is beautiful, health and delicious! Thanks, Shira.
Mmm, I love this! I eat edamame like your daughter, just plain! I do enjoy them in black bean & edamame salad as well as quinoa, corn and edamame salad too. I will have to check out your dressing recipe as well. I’ve been eating kale salads for lunch daily.
P.S. The photos in the post – as always – are magnificent. I’m especially fond of the photo with the measuring cups. They remind me of copper cookware and utensils my great-grandmother used. Always a great memory!
Thanks Nicole! I enjoyed the book so much I am going to read it over again – I always need a highlighter to note the parts that really resonate. I will check out her new one as well!
Amazing! Now THAT is just doing it, way to go!
I’m headed to Israel (The Holy Land) in a two weeks, I need reading material for the 18-hour flight!!!!!!!
Safe Travels! I’ve never been to Israel – lovely!
Love this color and flavor combo! Love edamame and yams, but have to skip those beans. I’ll have to think of a delicious sub…and will also check out the Happiness Project! Thanks!
幸福项目是如此宝贵的读物！您可以轻松地与羽衣甘蓝一起做山药 - 真是太好了！
Hmmm…NOT an edamame consumer here. I have not seen any that is not sourced in China. And I am not a soy fan. I AM going to try the kale vinaigrette and yams!
Excellent point Liz! I will have to look further into edamame and would love if you could post some more info on why you avoid it. We tend to use limited soy products but I’ve always had good digestive experiences with the beans in this form. The kale is worth trying all on its own!
I primarily avoid soy products because of the source…mostly China, but even U.S. organic can be GM although there are few soy products that I like so exactly a hardship ! I know there is controversy re health issues with soy – I don’t know enough about that to weigh in on one side or the other…the source and flavor are enough to keep me away. I also avoid U.S. corn except for local/fresh on the cob although not sure that is not GM as I don’t think there is non-GM corn in the U.S.
我是杂食，因此不需要蛋白质替代品。我已经用坚果/种子/小扁豆/传家宝型豆类和藜麦降低了肉类消耗 - 这种选择使我可以为自己，我的狗和我的猫购买高质量的本地，有机，人道饲养和宰杀的肉（我制作了原始饮食对于宠物）。我还碰巧喜欢坚果/种子/豆类/藜麦，除了鹰嘴豆以外，没有任何消化问题。
谢谢Richa！Totally hear you on the soy – it is tough for us as our youngest daughter is incredibly picky (really challenging for me actually), edamame is ONE source of protein she will eat, and I will have it here and there Hope you are well Richa, thank you! XO
I love edamame but, unfortunately, can’t find any where I live. I will try your sald with garbanzo beans, though. Or do you have other suggestions? Thanks!
Oh goodness this is so pretty I think I’ll whip some of this up for dinner tonight! You always have such a way of preparing food that lets the natural beauty and flavour of the ingredients shine! Love it (and you!!)!
通过朋友的博客“喜欢”找到了您的网站。简直不敢相信我发现了这个食谱 - 我在冰箱里有一些煮熟的地瓜，我想在它们变质之前使用它们。分数！我会用一些东西代替毛豆 - 可以不吃大豆（或羽衣甘蓝）。谢谢你。我会关注你（不要以怪异的方式）。
This looks like such a delicious salad- I love both edamame and roasted yams! They sound like a match made in heaven! I’m glad to hear your 2013 is getting off to a good start.
谢谢克里斯蒂！You too – loved following you through NYC Welcome home!
Oooooh two of my favourite, favourite foods!
Thanks Heather! Roasted with wasabi sounds amazing…I will have to try that! XO
