My go-to Foul Mudammas recipe for a quick, nutritious and utterly nostalgic home-cooked breakfast.
  • 1 can of Fava Beans
  • ½ - ¾ cups of water
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • ½ a medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small cucumber, diced
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • ½ tbsp cumin powder
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp of lime juice
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  1. Start by draining and rinsing your canned beans, before adding to a medium sized pan on low heat along with the water.
  2. Using a fork or potato masher, mash the roughly until there are very few whole beans left. Stir in more water as needed along with the garlic, cumin, salt and pepper. Allow the mixture to heat thoroughly for a few minutes before turning off the heat.
  3. Stir in your chopped veggies, parsley, lime juice and olive oil. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  4. Finish with a tablespoon of tahini on top and serve with your bread of choice.
