A quick and easy meal the whole family will love.


1 1⁄2 cups frozen shelled edamame
4 boneless pork chops (85 g each), trimmed of all visible fat
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 green capsicums, cut into wedges
2 medium zucchini, cut into wedges
4 spring onions, cut into 1 cm pieces
1 clove garlic, minced
1⁄2 cup salt-reduced chicken stock
1⁄4 cup chopped coriander


1. Prepare the edamame according to package directions; drain.
2. Meanwhile, rub the chops with the cumin and salt. Coat a large non-stick frying pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add the chops and cook for 4 minutes, turning once, or until a thermometer inserted in the centre of a chop registers 70°C and the juices run clear. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
3. Heat the oil in the same frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the capsicum, zucchini, spring onion and garlic, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, or until browned. Add the stock, coriander and edamame and cook for 3 minutes, or until the flavours meld. Serve with the chops.
