  1. Cook the rice following pack instructions, adding the edamame beans for the last 3 mins of cooking. Drain well.

  2. Meanwhile, steam the broccoli for 4-5 mins until tender. Run under very cold water, drain thoroughly and pat dry. In a small bowl, mix the miso, ginger, vinegar, honey, sesame oil and seasoning.

  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add the garlic and half the chilli and cook gently for a couple of mins, taking care not to burn. Throw in the prawns, lots of black pepper and a pinch of salt. Turn up the heat and cook for a few mins until the prawns are cooked through. Toss the miso dressing with the cooked rice, adding the spring onions, coriander and broccoli. Season and stir together. Spoon the spicy prawns on top, scatter over the remaining chilli and serve.

I usually love dishes like this but I was not keen on this. My partner took one bite out of the rice and threw it in the bin. I won't be cooking this again.

This was really delicious. I think I might try it with chicken rather than prawns next time though.

Really..REALLY loved this, used white rather than brown rice (we had white basmati in the cupboard so wasn't buying brown) and used shelled broad beans rather than edamame as they weren't available in the shops...also added two chillies, but they were the milder kind. Added everything to the one pan after cooking the prawns. May double the sauce quantities next time as it was so yummy.

Easy to make and really healthy. The recipe would probably work well with chicken instead of prawns too. Thumbs up!

how should i improve the taste?

What do you mean exactly? It has plenty of flavour, so by 'improving the taste' perhaps you just don't like the flavours?!
