Fool Medammas is such a tasty & healthy dish, but when making it the traditional way from scratch it can be a bit time consuming. Here, you can use canned fava beans for a much quicker (but still tasty) version. Fool Medammas is a very poular breakfast dish, served with fresh bread - perfect for Suhor during Ramadan. It also makes a nice light lunch if served with bread & a good salad or you can serve as part of a series of appetizers (like a mezze platter).
- Rinse & drain the canned fava beans. Place in a saucepan with the water & bring to a boil.
- Reduce the heat & simmer covered for 10 minutes, then add the garlic & chilli if using & cook a few more miuntes or until the beans are nicely softened.
- Remove from the heat & drain. Mix the lemon juice & salt in a serving bowl. Add the fava beans along with the parsley & mix well to coat.
- Drizzle the olive oil over the beans & serve with fresh bread.
