Dried Fava Beans

Recommended Posts

As Jenni said, Foul Mudammas is a meal. Usually accompanied with pita bread and lots of fresh and pickled vegetables.

This subject needs some photos:

Although the 'Whole Bean' ( unpeeled ) variety seemed like it could have been planted successsfully after an overnight soak since they seemed to 'Sprout ' as well as anything Ive ever done for a salad .. Nasty looking plant from what I found, so they all went into the Cuisinart

Fava beans grow quite well even in MI weather.

That looks beautiful. I don't have any pitas, but I guess some other flat bread could stand in for it.

I see cucumbers, mint, olives and pickled chilis...do you use chopped boiled eggs, too? And do you chop your garnishes, or put them on whole?

There's a LOT of (English) spelling variation.

I thought Ful Mesdames was the common one ... anyway, its another useful search term.

The most useful search term would be: فول مدمس ;)

Copy and paste in your search engine.

Sorry to have lost this thread- to stuff a lamb pocket with fava beans I soak and cook the beans, then toss them with cumin, olive oil, salt and garlic. I chop a lot of parsley and add that to the beans, then stuff the lamb with them before roasting it. I make hashu on the side, that's a "stuffing" made with ground lamb and rice with toasted pine nuts and sauteed onions. I usually bake a lot of halved Spanish onions alongside the lamb pocket, and I serve steamed carrots and string beans at the table, as my daughter likes that combination of flavors. We also usually have a lemon, cumin and garlic seasoned salad made with parsley, mixed greens and tomatoes with this meal. I rarely have meat in the house any longer, but this is a favorite of my daughter for Shabbat dinner- it's well worth the effort involved in having meat shipped to the house every so often. Heck, the pine nuts cost more per pound than the lamb does these days!
