Heat EVOO gently, add sliced garlic and "toast," being careful not to burn.
When garlic is toasted to your liking, stop its cooking by adding the chopped tomatoes, stock, lemon, and olives, and simmer for 20 minutes.
Taste and season. It may need a pinch of whatever ‘sweetener’ you prefer to balance acidity.
Finish with edamame, fava or your favorite legume and herb garnish. You may take this in any direction you like.
If you’d like, you can choose to finish the dish by sprinkling the top with grated Violife Parmesan, a 100% vegan cheese.
