Ful Mudammas Recipe: Simple, Flavorful Snack

Beautiful Ful

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.

1. Pour fava beans into a small pot and boil them for a few minutes.

2. Then, take off the stove and mash most of the fava beans but leave some unmashed for texture. I use a masher but this can be easily done with a fork. 

3. Stir in the garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, red pepper, olive oil, and lemon. Season to taste. I usually add a bit more than what’s in the recipe because I love spices.

4. Finally, 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. It can be served with pita, crackers, bread, or carrots.
