Foul Medammas - Oasis Bakery AUD5

After seeing this delicious looking peasant dish on travel shows of the Middle East, I finally got to try the Foul Medammas. It is definitely a frugal dish with not much more than fava beans and chickpeas, cooked in water. Once cooked, chopped garlic, parsley, salt and lemon juice are added, and that is it.


As a dish, it is quite plain, but the slurp of olive oil gives it a nice richness, that when combined with the starchiness of the beans, the broth was quite nice for dipping a piece of warm fresh pita bread.


And if it was good enough for the ancient Egyptians, it's good enough for me!
