    najwa's Note:

    Traditional breakfast in the middle east. This is my mom's recipe, my (and my husband's) favorite. You can make it at night and heat the next morning, keeps well in the fridge. I do not use oil to cook the onions, to lower the fat, and it tastes just as good!

      Served with pita bread, feta, and cucumbers. Thanks! This has earned a spot in the breakfast menu rotation.

      This was really excellent- reminded me of Middle Eastern refried beans! I found 1/4 cup of tomato sauce was sufficient for flavor. Ate it with Trader Joe's Garlic Naan bread.

      Delicious! This was my first try with fava beans. The beans have a smoky flavor that adds depth to the simple recipe. I added garlic to the onion and cooked these longer than suggested; otherwise I stuck to the recipe.
