Overall, I really liked this recipe. I have made it a few times and found it to taste better with 'fresh' instead of canned tomatoes. However, overall, it is easy, healthy, and a great recipe!
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 thought I would love this recipe, because I am a fan of Mexican and love cumin and coriander. I discovered that edamame tastes awful. I am trying to follow a vegan diet for the Lenten Season, but I won't be making this again.
This is one of my favorite new recipes. If you can find edamame (soybeans), usually in the frozen vegetable section of the supermarket, I would try this recipe. It's easy to make, doesn't take long to make, and you can easily customize it. I'm eating some right now!
To this last batch I added some eggplant I peeled and diced up. If you want to add ground beef or turkey, I'm sure that would be great, too. Usually I feel that I need some sort of meat to feel full, but this stew works for me just fine without meat.
You can eat the stew alone; I usually eat it with brown rice. Any grain would be good, I think; I just always have brown rice on hand, so that's my go-to.
I made this for dinner tonight for my family and I - it was a huge hit! I didn't have zucchini, so I used carrotts (I saw that suggestion from another viewer). I also added mushrooms and peas. I upped the amounts of the spices a bit and also added some white wine before I added in the tomatoes. I didn't cook the edamame before hand, just added them into the pot a little bit before I added the tomatoes (they were frozen) and it worked out great. I served it over brown rice. Will definitely make this again!!
I made this for dinner tonight and it came out perfect. I added a half an eggplant that had been sitting in the fridge and added a little bit of hot sauce to my serving. I had as is but my parents had it over brown rice and thought it was great!
