Top Review by Nasseh

I had a 15oz can of fava beans & chickpeas so I used that to make this recipe. I used a fresh tomato from our garden & added a little onion powder to the mix. DH said that it had too much of a lemon flavor & he had me add some cumin. If I make again I will reduce the amount of lemon juice. Made for Ramadan Tag

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a frying pan, add the olive oil and garlic, stir for a minute or so to bring out flavor.
  2. Peel the fava beans before adding them to the frying pan. This makes for a smoother dish.
  3. Add the lemon juice and salt. Mix together and cover for a minute or two.
  4. If you have a nice, ripe tomato, dice it small and add it to the frying pan. It gives a real nice flavor to the dish. If its not ripe, leave the tomato out.
  5. Cover and let simmer for 2-3 minutes, mixing occasionaly.
  6. Turn off the fire, and take a fork and smash all the ingredients together. You dont want to make it a smooth paste like hummous, but rather one with little "chunks" in it.
  7. Garnish with parsley and olive oil. This is normally served with pita bread. Enjoy!
