Middle Eastern Bean Dip (Foul Mudammas)

Recipe by  

"My best friend is Syrian and taught me to make this. It is often eaten for breakfast, but I like to make it for dinner. It is vegan and great for fasting periods. If you cannot find fava beans, check a middle eastern market. Add more lemon juice if you like it bitter! Serve with pita bread. It's also great with Kalamata olives, feta cheese, and lemon wedges.

Directions

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the onion in the hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the fava beans, garbanzo beans, and water to the onion; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Stir the tomato paste, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, the garlic, tahini, and cumin through the bean mixture; return the mixture to a boil and allow to cook at a boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Pour the mixture into a blender. Hold the lid of the blender in place with a towel and start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the mixture moving before leaving it on to puree to your desired consistency.

I'm watching an Ethiopian woman smashing the competition in the 10,000 meter race in the Olympics, London 2012! About this Foul Mudammas. I really like what I got with the changes I made. All Favas, no garbanzos, no water, 15 oz can tomato sauce, double the tahini and cumin. Excellent.

This tastes good, but it looks just awful. I think the color is just really bad. My blender couldn't process the whole amount at once, so I had to divide it and blend separately. I never got it to a super smooth consistency.

This tastes sooo good. Yes, it looks kind of gross, but that is just due to the ingredients. It really tastes great.
