DIRECTIONS

  • Soak the dried black turtle beans in the water for several hours or overnight.
  • Cook the soaked beans in fresh water to cover for 1 1/2 - 2 hours until tender. (Cook fresh favas until just tender).
  • Drain the cooked beans while they're still hot and toss them with the olive oil, garlic and lemon juice. The warm beans will readily absorb the flavors.
  • Add plenty of salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Stir in half of the tomatoes and parsley.
  • Taste the ful. It should be lemony and garlicky, not bland. Add more lemon if necessary.
  • Turn the ful into a warm serving bowl and top it with the rest of the tomatoes and parsley and garnish it with lemon wedges and hard-boiled eggs if you like.
  • Serve warm, but can also be served chilled or at room temperature.
