    Foul Mudammas (Fava Bean Breakfast Dish)

    I always looked forward to Sunday because the family would always get together to have a traditional Arabic breakfast which is my favorite. On the table, you will always find this foul recipe. Each country has its own twist in the Middle East as to how they make this. This is my mom’s way of making foul for many years and what takes it to another level is the sauce. The jalapeno lemon topping adds a great tang to the beans. The tomatoes and cilantro add a nice fresh bite as well. Some people will drown the foul with olive oil but I personally prefer it without as much oil.…
