Among a majority of families in the South Asia to Northern African region, breakfast is comprised of a couple loaves of warm pita bread and a bowl of ful mudammas. Ful mudammas is an easy-to-prepare dish of slightly mashed fava beans. The recipe has slight variations from region to region; however, most include with olive oil, cumin, chopped parsley, onion, garlic, and/or lemon juice. All ful mudammas is usually scooped with torn pieces of bread similar to how hummus, baba ganouj, and some South Asian curried dishes are eaten. Here is the recipe for the Palestinian style of ful mudammas. It's not only a great vegetarian option, but extremely protein-rich and a filling and healthy alternative to your standard bacon and eggs. --------------------------------------------------------------- Ful Mudammas (Fava Bean Salad) 1 can fava beans (20 oz.) 1 clove of garlic 3 tbsp. of olive oil 1/4 cup lemon juice 1 tsp. salt 1 tbsp. parsley, chopped 1.
