Eat Like Egyptian

A while ago I found some cheap dried fava beans, but I didn’t use them for anything right away. They were smaller than fava beans I’ve eaten before and the package said they have exciting taste. Yesterday I thought I’d soak and boil half of them and cook them somehow. The beans tasted as exciting as normal fava beans, but they didn’t have such a hard skin.

I found this Fool Medemmas recipe and decided to try it. I made a bigger batch, since it was supposed to be today’s dinner for two and tomorrow’s lunch for one. It was great with pita bread, and super quick to make. Fresh parsley would probably been better, but we only had dried.

Fool Medemmas

6 dl cooked fava beans
3 small onions
2 plum tomatoes
3 tbsp oil
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried parsley
1,25 dl lemon juice
1 hot (or medium hot) chili
salt and pepper

Chop the onions, dice the tomatoes and mince the chili. Mix everything in a pot, bring to boil and cook on medium heat 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Serve with pita bread.
