Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Bring 1 1/4 cups water, 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) and broth concentrate to a boil in a covered medium pot. Add rice, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Fluff the rice with a fork.
While rice cooks, peel, then cut sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Add sweet potatoes and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through, until golden-brown and tender, 22-24 min.
While sweet potatoes roast, trim snap peas, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Thinly slice green onions. Peel, then finely grate 1 tbsp ginger (dbl for 4 ppl). Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add sesame seeds and cashews to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 2-3 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on the nuts and seeds so they don't burn!) Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Reheat the same pan over medium-high. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then snap peas and edamame. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Add garlic puree, ginger and half the green onions. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant and warmed through, 2-3 min. Transfer veggies to another plate and set aside.
Reheat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) and half the sesame oil (all for 4 ppl), then rice. Cook, stirring occasionally, until rice is golden and any remaining liquid is absorbed, 3-4 min. Remove pan from heat. Add veggies, sweet potato, soy sauce, half the nuts and seeds and half the rice vinegar (all for 4 ppl). Stir to combine.
Divide veggie rice between plates. Sprinkle remaining nuts and seeds and remaining green onions over top.
