Its different, so why not? Different taste all together, took me a few bites to get use to it. Not bad at all, just different. It gets better when the bacon juices get in there. Do add more bacon, would be good with chives on top too.

I make this recipe often. It is so good, so much better then my former favorite. It is easy, and one could substitute the edamame beans with almost anything. It is the best corn choweder ever. julia

Made this soup with one small modification. I used 5% cream instead of half and half which is 10%. It turned out quite good. I would make it again.

This recipe is great! I changed it a bit. I added two sticks of celery and garlic with the onion, then I added the potato. After the potato was soft I took out half of them, then pureed the celery, onion, stock, potato in the blender with the cream. I then returned it to the pot and added the chunks of potato, cream corn, edamame and enough stock to make a good consistency. Much better texture this way than the listed way in the recipe I think. Great flavor, give it a try!

Chickpeas MIGHT taste okay, but they're nothing like edamame. You'd be better off using another green veggie like lima beans, or maybe peas. It's the best with edamame, though. They're hard to find in PA too. I can find them frozen in one store here.

edamame are just soybeans, may be canned soy beans?

I live in NZ and have never seen edamame here so was wondering if I could substitute them for chickpeas?

To make this yummy soup vegetarian, I simply omitted the bacon and cooked the onion in canola oil or olive oil - so delicious!

easy, quick and delicious! i used real bacon bits purchased from the grocery store instead of frying my own bacon and it probably didn't make much difference taste-wise.
