These Shiitake Edamame Bowls Are…

  • Vegan
  • Delicious
  • Umami-rich
  • Quick and easy to make
  • Super satisfying
  • Nutrition-packed

Substitutions & Modifications

  • Instead of shiitakes, feel free to use other seasonal mushrooms such as oyster mushrooms or maitakes. The cooking method will be the same.
  • Feel free to add in other Asian vegetables of choice such as bok choy, daikon radish, Chinese eggplant, etc.
  • Any type of miso can be used in the miso sauce, but if you use darker miso the color of the sauce will be darker and the flavor will be deeper. I prefer white miso for sauces because it has a sweeter and more delicate flavor.
  • The mirin is optional, but it will make the dressing a bit sweeter and add yummy flavor. If you don’t have mirin, add a bit of your liquid sweetener of choice, or you can just leave it out.
  • I recommend using toasted or dark sesame oil for roasting, as it lends a deep, smoky flavor. If you can’t find it, you can use lighter sesame oil or a neutral oil like canola oil.

  • 1 tbsp ginger root, minced or grated
  • 1 garlic clove

Roasted Veggies

  • Transfer to bowls.

Prepare Fixings & Assemble Bowls

  • Blend together the sauce ingredients in a small blender cup. Add water to thin.
  • If using frozen edamame, thaw it by running hot water over it in a mesh strainer, then microwave, or boil.
  • To assemble your bowls, start with the warm steamed cabbage, then pile on the roasted veggies and edamame.
  • Drizzle with sauce, garnish, and enjoy!
