Most to be expected in terms of Middle Eastern food but one that gets a little attention despite its more flavorful composition: ful medames (also called foule, or foule madammas), a bean dip like hummus, but made with fava beans instead of garbanzo beans. It’s so easy to make, it’s madness. We’ll show you how!
