Middle Eastern Foul, Otherwise Known Fava Bean & Red Lentil Mash


middle eastern foul

When traveling through the Middle East, one not-to-miss dish is foul. Sometimes spelled fuul or ful, this hearty dish is traditionally eaten for breakfast and features a slow cooked mash of brown beans and red lentils or fava beans gowned in cumin, lemon and olive oil. In certain places you’ll also find other topping options, like chili pepper and sumac.
