Foul Mudammas



Foul Mudammas


For this recipe, I used canned fava beans bought from the ethnic grocery store.

In a pot, put olive oil and minced garlic.
Then add cumin, salt and cayenne pepper. Let all this work for a few minutes.
Next, add the drained fava beans and stir thoroughly.
Add about 2/3 cup of hot water.
Take a potato masher and mash some of the beans, this will thickened the sauce somewhat. Add lemon juice and mix well. Adjust seasoning, if necessary.

Into each individual bowl, place fried eggs, one in each bowl, drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil, chopped green onion and a sprinkling of paprika.
Serve with toasted pita.
