  • 1 large pot
  • 1 small pot
  • 1 small saucepan
  • 1 medium bowl



  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • ½ lime (zested)
  • ½ tablespoon fresh ginger (minced)
  • 1 cucumber (thinly sliced)
  • 1 cup edamame (shelled)
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 scallions (thinly sliced, green parts only)
  • salt and pepper
  • sesame seeds (to garnish, optional)


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water


  • Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a large pot. Add edamame and return to a boil. Cook, uncovered over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain.
  • While the edamame is cooking, combine the quinoa with 2 cups of water in a small pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until the liquid has evaporated, about 15 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork. Season to taste.
  • While the edamame and quinoa cook put olive oil and sesame oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the lime zest and ginger. Let the oil warm up slowly, undisturbed until it starts to bubble steadily, about 10 minutes.
  • Put the cucumber in a medium bowl. Add the edamame and scallion greens and pour over the warm oil; stir to coat well. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with sesame seeds if you like and serve with the quinoa.
