Foul – Lebanese Fava Bean Vegan Breakfast

 

DifficultyBeginner

It may not look like much or sound as good as it tastes but foul is an incredibly delicious and healthy breakfast that’s extremely fast to prepare. In fact, it’s so good that it might also become your go-to after-work quick meal.

Pretty much, it’s bean mash on steroids; garlicy, lemony, and full of protein. Mop it up with some fresh pita bread, tomato, and parsley. Add a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil…you’ll thank us.

Yields1 Serving

 1 can of Lebanese Foul cooked fava beans
 3 garlic cloves, minced
 1 pinch sea salt
 ½ lemon
 1 hand full of parsley roughly chopped
 1 large tomato, cubed
 olive oil for drizzling

Total Time10 mins

1

Empty the tin of Lebanese Foul cooked fava beans into a medium-sized saucepan (with juices) and turn on high.

2

Add your minced garlic to a mortar and pound into a paste with the sea salt. If you don’t have a mortar, scrape the salt and garlic together using the flat side of a knife. Mix with the lemon juice and set aside.

3

Your beans should now be at the boil. Take a masher and start to mash. The goal is a course mash with some beans still visible.

4

Add your lemon juice mixture to the beans and stir briefly.

5

Serve in bowls topped with parsley and tomato with a generous drizzle of olive oil, and Alamir Bakery Pita Bread on the side.
