I am a fan of artichokes and soybeans, so I figured this would be a delightful recipe - unfortunately it wasn't touched after the first serving and ended up being tossed. I used frozen soybeans instead of canned and onion and ginger powder instead of fresh. If I were to try this again I would stick with the canned soybeans (they seem to puree better) and not take any shortcuts with the onion and ginger. Don't make the mistakes I did :)
