If you’re cutting back on simple carbohydrates in your diet, or avoiding gluten, but are missing some of your favourite dishes, you might try this. I find the texture of the edamame, combined with the spaghetti sauce, satisfies my craving for pasta.
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup shelled edamame, fresh or frozen
1 cup carrots, sliced into coins
2 cups sliced mushroom (optional)
2 cooked sausages (I like Italian), sliced
1 cup spaghetti sauce
In a large frying pan, combine water, oil, vegetables and mushrooms. Stir over high heat until they come to a boil. Cover, and turn down to low. Cook for 30 minutes. Remove lid, turn heat back up to medium, stir in sausage and spaghetti sauce, and continue to stir until warmed through.
