Liang Mu Di (Chinese Stir-Fried Corn and Edamame)
30 mins (prep 30)
7 ingredients
4 servings
The name of this dish means "two plots of land", and evokes the image of a field of corn and a field of soybeans growing side by side. Growing up in Iowa, this was the reality of the landscape around me, but it wasn't until I moved to China that I encountered this simple vegetable dish that brings the two together. This is standard fare in the parts of China where I've lived. To see a couple of variations on this dish, and get a snapshot of the kind of kitchen where it's produced daily, read and look here:
