Egyptian Edamame Stew

A riff on the Egyptian classic ful medames, a highly seasoned fava bean mash, this version is made with easier-to-find edamame. Edamame (fresh green soybeans) have been shown to lower LDL cholesterol. They can be found shelled in the freezer section of well-stocked supermarkets. This stew is great served with couscous, bulgur or warm whole-wheat pita bread to soak up the sauce.

Not as exciting or flavorful as expected...

I made this and was excited, but with a large tin of tomatoes (a 14 oz can would have been more appropriate than the 28 oz-er that is recommended) and lemon juice, this dish was too acidic for poor stomach! That, and the flavors weren't as outstanding as expected from all the rave reviews.

Family loved it

This is an easy, healthy and tasty addition to family meals. We are not vegetarians so I added chicken and served with rice.

Have you tried cooking Quinoa

Have you tried cooking Quinoa in a rice cooker? If you have one, it's super easy! The ratio is about 1:1. You can use water or vegetable broth for more flavor.

My family really loved this recipe and found it was even better the next day when the flavors had a chance to marry and absorb more. I served it over quinoa. Very yummy, hearty and easy! Will definitely make again!

underwhelming

I expected a hit since I love all of the ingredients but this did not work for me. Since it is so healthy I will try it again with some of the other user modifications. Flavors were really flat.
