Recently my husband and I tool part in a three-day refresh program. We just wanted to get ourselves back on track after a period of too much eating and not enough exercise. The 3-Day Refresh consists of three daily shakes, a fiber drink, plenty of water, plus a wide variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats throughout the day to keep your energy and metabolism going. This carrot seaweed medley was one of my favorite dishes.
The meal plan is simple and they give you a variety of options for delicious dinners. My favorite is the Carrot-Seaweed Medley. The recipe only makes one serving but is easily doubled or tripled depending on how many people you are feeding. I plan to make it again as a side dish. The seaweed adds a mild flavor and cooking the vegetables in sesame oil give the whole dish sort of a nutty flavor. This is a dish I will enjoy again! I found the package of dried arame seaweed on Amazon. I’m sure you have all the other ingredients on hand.
½ tsp sesame oil
¼ medium onion, cut into thin slices
½ medium carrot, cut into matchstick size pieces
¼ medium red pepper, cut into strips
2 Tbsp shelled edamame
2 Tbsp arame seaweed
¼ cup water
1 dash of Himalayan salt
1 scallion thinly sliced.
Soak the seaweed in cool water for 5 minutes, drain and set aside.
Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently for two minutes.
Add the carrots, bell pepper, edamame, seaweed and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to maintain a gently boil; cook covered for 5-8 minutes.
Remove cover. Add salt and cook for 1 minutes. Add scallion. Mix well and serve.
Don’t let the seaweed throw you off from trying this delicious dish!
