Ful medames is a very simple to make dish. Only time consuming parts of the recipe are soaking the beans and cooking them. If these are done, then all that is left is mixing all the ingredients and serving. I served it with some pita wedges and it was definitely a filling breakfast that kept me going till the afternoon.


34 serving

Total time

200 minutes




  • 1 cup Fava Beans (Whole)
  • 3 ~ 4 tbsp Tahini
  • cup almond meal (Ground)
  • 2 ~ 3 cloves Garlic (, finely minced)
  • 3 tbsp Flat leaf parsley (- , finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • to taste Salt Pepper (&)


  1. Rinse and soak fava beans overnight. Then drain and add enough water to cover about ½~1" above the beans and bring the mixture to a boil. Cover the pot and simmer for about 1½~2 hours or until the beans are tender. Alternately use your pressure cooker to cook the beans in fraction of the time.
  2. Once cooked, drain them and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir in the lemon juice, tahini, cumin and garlic.
  4. Serve warm garnished with the parsley and olive oil.
