Foul a.k.a. Fava beans :)

Delicious for breakfast or lunch! :)

1 can Americana® fava beans (you can get it at any Arab store.. I like the Americana brand)
1 chopped tomato
Olive oil
Roasted peppers for garnish
Lemon juice
A dash of ground cumin

-Place contents of can in an 8-inch pan, add the cumin and simmer (covered) on medium-low heat until it comes to a boil. Let it cook for about 10 minutes until the fava beans are easily squished with a fork.. that means that they are fully cooked.

-After the fava beans are cooked add some lemon juice to taste then squish half of the beans with the fork.

-Transfer to a plate and garnish with tomatoes, peppers (if you like), and olive oil.

Enjoy this tasty and filling meal with some whole wheat pita bread and a hot cup of tea! :)
