Craving sushi but going out for lunch is not in the budget right now? Try this sushi salad. It has everything – rice, edamame, seaweed (yes!) and a sweet miso dressing.

This is not just a salad. This is a lunch bowl. Edamame adds a nice amount of good vegetarian protein, the rice helps make this bowl substantial enough to get you through until dinner time.

Of course, you can make this bowl for dinner too. Salad for dinner? I’m in!

Ingredients for the perfect sushi salad

Seaweed. Nori sheets are easy to find at most grocery stores. Get them online as well, here. I find them hard to slice with a knife. It’s much easier to roll them up like a cigar and use scissors to cut into thin strips.

Edamame. I used frozen shelled edamame beans for this recipe. Prepare them according to package directions (a quick boil in salted water or steam in the microwave).

Edamame beans are an easy way to add healthy plant-based protein to this salad.

Miso. Miso is a paste made from fermented soybeans, rice or other grains. It is salty and savory and gives dishes “umami.”

Miso comes in several varieties. Color varies between light yellow (like I’ve used here) to dark red. The darker the color the stronger and saltier the miso tends to be. Lighter varieties tend to have a little bit of sweetness. Use any type of miso in this dressing.

I keep light miso on hand as its mild flavor works in many recipes. It’s the only one I stock in my pantry.

Miso will last forever in the refrigerator and is handy to ingredient to keep around. Try these roasted Brussels sprouts with a miso glaze if you are wondering what else to do with it.
