Fava Beans with Lemon Juice & Crushed Garlic (Foul Mudammas)

  • 1 can fava beans, drained
  • 1 can garbanzo beans, drained (or additional can fava beans)
  • 1 large garlic clove, smashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, more to taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon, more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, more for serving
  • Fresh tomatoes and parsley, for serving

  • Smash the garlic and a few pinches of salt with a mortar and pestle.
  • Add the lemon juice; allow it to sit while preparing the beans (this helps to mellow out the raw garlic).
  • In a medium pot add beans and enough water to just cover the beans. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes to soften beans.
  • Gently smash some of the beans to create a creamy consistency. Add the garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil. Taste for salt and lemon.
