Foul Mudammas is a popular Middle Eastern vegan dish. It is found and sold as street food throughout the Middle East. It is a very tasty dish, made with hearty, creamy fava beans and loaded with ground cumin, lemon, and olive oil. It is commonly served for breakfast and it is a very filling dish. In this Foul Mudammas recipe, I am using cooked canned fava beans to save time, also like to add eggs to make this recipe even better. It is served with warm pita bread and sliced veggies. You can found Foul Mudammas in the international section at your local grocery store, Arabic groceries but definitely online on Amazon
