I love broad beans especially with szechuan pepper!

I made this recipe with fava beans over the weekend and the yield on fava beans after shelling and peeling is so low, I tried it this week with frozen shelled edamame and it was great both ways! Definitely give it a go with the edamame-- spicy but not so much that my two kids wouldn't eat it. And takes about three minutes to make with the frozen, thawed edamame! Will definitely make it again!
