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.
OMG this was really really yummy! I love it and so did my husband. I had to stop myself eating the whole lot before he got home. We just had it with a bit of toast although it was good enough to just eat like that. I added 4 small garlic cloves and sauteed them together with 1tbsp olive oil and then added fava beans I soaked overnight, peeled and boiled. It made me feel like I was eating mashed potatoes but so much yummier. This would make an awesome side dish. Update: it also tastes good with other beans such as chickpeas in a pinch
Wonderfu!! I saw the Egypt episode of Anthony Bourdaine's "No Reservations" and it showed him having this dish for breakfast. It looked like a perfect, delicious breakfast to me... and it is!!! I used half of the salt, a can of Goya pink beans (I always have those on hand) and an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce (I preferred the consistency with extra sauce). On the show, it showed this dish topped with a coarsely chopped, boiled egg. I did that and I loved it!! I ate it with whole wheat naan bread. Thank you for posting this recipe!
We've just eaten this for breakfast - and it was a resounding success! Used freshly picked beans and left out the salt. Really delicious! Thank you!
Very easy to make and nutritious also! Thanks for sharing.
That's the way I rember having breakfast, when I was little in Alexandria Egypt,where I was born, my mom used to have it ready before going to school..DELICIOUS!!
I made this for dinner with your arabian bread recipe and my family enjoyed it. I'ts very tasty and filling...hmmm...delicious! Thank you kindly for sharing.
