I love cumin, zucchini and tomatoes and don't eat much meat so when I read the ingredients I knew that I would like it. My family, on the other hand, when they saw it thought right away that they wouldn't like it. After trying some, however, it was a hit! Don't let the words 'vegetarian' and seeing all the veggies turn you off...This is delicious! And I didn't eat it with rice or couscous, but by itself. I would add a smidge of salt. Note: I followed the recipe exactly, no subs
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 made this last night using cilantro instead of mint and served over bulgur wheat. The acidity of the dish is a bit much for my sensitive stomach, I ended up adding cojita cheese to mellow it out a bit (and what dish doesn't need cheese!).
I made this recipe last night for the first time and LOVED it! I served it over bulgur and used the suggested mint instead of cilantro. I also left out the coriander because I didn't have any on hand. The dish had a very refreshing taste and, like someone else mentioned, the leftovers were excellent too with the flavors better melded together. Even my husband was quick to grab some leftovers to take to work today, and he's usually VERY skeptical of any meal without meat! Quick to put together, healthy, and delicious - I'll definitely prepare this meal again!
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! :)
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.
