I've blogged about Ful Medames before. It's the traditional breakfast in Egypt and the breakfast Big Momma & the gang this morning. Fava (broad) beans, tomatoes, garlic, herbs, and spices. Served with pitta (although we didn't have any -- it's still good served neat).* I used tinned tomatoes and frozen fava beans (from that giant tin I mentioned earlier). It cooks up really quickly.
I fried garlic, freshly ground cumin and coriander, chili flakes, thyme, and ginger in a pan until fragrant. Then I added the frozen fava beans and stirred them around until they thawed. Then I added tinned tomatoes and salt and cooked everything until it started to get a little pasty. I served and topped it with coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley. It was so good, I licked the plate!
* That's a way of serving booze, not improper use of an adverb.
