Foul


Foul and tamees is truly a Saudi favorite and one of my personal favorite meals. Saudis usually eat this meal late but sometimes it can bought for breakfast. Notice I say bought and not made because well Saudis never make it. You can find it everywhere and it’s practically free. My husband and I prefer the foul made at certain places and everyone seems to also have their favorite spots. The picture above is tames and foul from our favorite hole in the wall place. We love foul with lots of stuff on top; this is what we always get. It has tahini, tomatoes, salata hara, peppers, cheese and eggs and it is amazing. I have had so many requests for this dish so I got the recipe from my mother in law, I hope you enjoy it.

Foul Madshoush:
1 cup split fava beans (soaked overnight)
2 small onions, minced
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon pepper
2 garlic cloves, smashed
6 small tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 tablespoon salt
3 cups water

1. On medium heat add oil, onions and garlic, cook until tender.

2. In a saucepan on high heat add water, beans and onion mixture. Cook until water has boiled out. Lightly mash beans.

3. Add tomatoes, cumin, pepper and salt . Simmer until thoroughly cooked. Remove from heat and add cilantro, mix well.

    Foul is so famous here. My sister is a Foul lover. I like its bread actually and I often eat along with my tea in the morning.

    Assalaam alaykum sister,

    I would like to know if it's possible to prepare this with white beans. I ordered my husband to buy fava beans, but he bought the wrong ones!

    Jazaaki Llaahu khayran!

    We mash it here in Saudi but countries like Egypt leave the beans whole. But like I said here we like it mashed.
