Foul/Ful Medames is a famous Mediterannean dish often eaten for breakfast. This recipe requires some time if traditionally cooked for about 8-10 hours; I did never try though. Fava Beans are soaked overnight and then slow-simmered which is then seasoned with olive oil and spices. But now as cooked fava beans are readily available in cans, it saves time.
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
2 cans (3 cups) fava beans
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. red chili powder
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup parsley
Heat olive oil in a pan and saute onion and garlic till it turns translucent.
Add tomatoes and cook till it turns soft.
Stir in fava beans and spices and cook for about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and mash them using a fork or potato masher.
Serve them seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice and parsley along with fried egg and pita bread.
