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.
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.

I served over quinoa. Good but not my favorite.
This is an easy, healthy and tasty addition to family meals. We are not vegetarians so I added chicken and served with rice.
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!
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.
