Recipe Inspiration

A couple of weeks ago I told you all about a date with my husband that did not go as planned. We had planned to eat at a cute little restaurant near our house, but instead, we drove around for an hour and a half looking for a restaurant that had seating.

We are so out of the weekend restaurant game. In three or four months, when we get around to getting a sitter again, I’ll remember, “you need reservations on the weekend.”

In any case, we ended up at an interesting little establishment where we shared some fried green beans with a delicious wasabi dipping sauce.

Since that night, I’ve had wasabi on my mind. I started thinking, “I bet wasabi would be good with teriyaki sauce”, and y’all, I was right. It a fun twist on traditional teriyaki chicken and rice.

Wasabi Teriyaki Chicken and Rice

My favorite thing about this recipe, well one of my favorite things is: It can be made in an Instant Pot. That thing is my jam.

My second favorite thing about this dish is that it has edamame. Not because I love edamame, although I do, but because my three year old pronounces it in the most adorable way …. he gets excited and says, “look mama, this has eda-mommy!”
