Fava Bean Salad (Fool Meudane) Middle East, Palestine

READY IN: 10mins
YIELD: 2-4




  • In a frying pan, add the olive oil and garlic, stir for a minute or so to bring out flavor.
  • Peel the fava beans before adding them to the frying pan. This makes for a smoother dish.
  • Add the lemon juice and salt. Mix together and cover for a minute or two.
  • 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.
  • Cover and let simmer for 2-3 minutes, mixing occasionaly.
  • 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.
  • Garnish with parsley and olive oil. This is normally served with pita bread. Enjoy!
