I made it today and we really enjoyed it! The only change I mad was adding 1 tsp. of salt and I used more garlic as we love the flavor! Will definitely be adding this into our menu rotation! :)
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.
36 Reviews for Egyptian Edamame Stew
I know everyone has different tastes, but I don't understand how this recipe could receive so many good reviews. I followed it exactly, no alterations, and neither my husband nor I could finish one bowl of it (served over plain couscous). We threw the rest of it away. It's a very tart dish that was not at all pleasing to the palette.
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.
I served over quinoa. Good but not my favorite.
