Foul- (pronounced Fool)

_DSC0295

There are many kinds of Foul in the middle East. Foul is a dish comprised of fava beans which can be found at any middle eastern grocery store. In our area it is also available at the local co-op (natural foods store). Some Foul is eaten with very little added and other dishes are more elaborate. This is our family favorite!

Ingredients

1 can of foul

5 tomatoes, 3 chopped into big chunks and set aside, 2 chopped into small pieces and set aside.

1 bunch parsley, washed and chopped fine.

3 garlic cloves,  2 sliced and 1 minced

1 tsp. cumin

salt to taste

juice of 1 lemon

1 tbs. Tahini

1 clove garlic

Directions

Drain can of foul and place beans into a sauce pan, add 2 sliced cloves of garlic, add the 3 tomatoes that were cut into big chunks. Turn to medium heat and cook, smash some of the beans with a fork as they are cooking. Add salt and cumin, mix well. Let the tomatoes break down into a sauce.

Mix in 2 Tbs. of the chopped parsley. Turn off heat. Tomatoes should be broken

down into a sauce type mixture with the beans at this point. Add lemon juice from one lemon and stir in.

Take all of the sauce ingredients and blend them well in a blender or food processor.

Pour the Foul onto a plate and spread out. Top with tomatoes, mix 3 Tbs. chopped
