    My family enjoyed this meal. My prep time was a bit longer do to being new to cooking, and shelling the beans.  -  23 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Made half withv tofu & half with salmon steaks. Too much work. Also I used dries peas cooked instead of edamame as that is what I had on hand.  -  20 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
