Ful Mudammas Recipe: Simple, Flavorful Snack

Cooks in 15 Difficulty Easy 3 comments

Ful is a North African and Middle Eastern dish that is equally flavorful, healthy, and simple to make. When I was in Morocco, I tried Ful and was blown away by it. As a result of my time in Morocco, I decided I had to make my own Ful when I returned and this has certainly become a staple of mine.

It’s a perfect weekday snack, appetizer at a party, and veggie barbecue accompaniment during those warm, but limited summer months. And best of all it’s ethically guilt free insofar as it’s a vegan snack that is quite healthy and nutritious. You can find Fava Beans in the international section of most grocery stores.

Ingredients

  • 2 16oz cans Fava Beans

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp pepper

  • 2 tsp cumin (I add a bit more)

  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (I usually add more)

  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)

  • 1 lemon (squeezed)

  • 3 tsp olive oil (2 for mixing in the ful and 1 for drizzling on top of the ful)

  • 5 mini cherry tomatoes (garnish)

  • 5 sprigs cilantro (garnish)

Directions

  • Pour fava beans with their juice into a small pot and boil them for a few minutes.
  • Take the pot off the stove and mash most of the fava beans but leave some unmashed for texture.
  • Stir in the garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, red pepper, olive oil, and lemon. Season to taste.
  • Transfer to a bowl and garnish with tomatoes, cilantro, and olive oil and enjoy! Your Ful is now ready to eat! I like to eat it slightly warm but it can also be served cold/room temperature.

Notes

  • This recipe also keeps well for a few days so you can eat it throughout the week!
  • This goes really well with carrots, pita, and chips.
