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
Roasted peppers for garnish
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! :)
