Foul Medamas is a traditional Middle Eastern breakfast dish made with cooked and mashed fava beans. It is a popular dish in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and other countries in the region. The dish is typically served with a variety of toppings and accompaniments, including chopped tomatoes, onions, parsley, lemon juice, and olive oil.
To prepare foul medamas, dried fava beans are soaked overnight, then cooked until tender. Once cooked, the beans are mashed with garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil, and seasoned with salt and pepper to taste. The mixture is then heated until warmed through.
Foul medamas is often served with pita bread or other flatbreads, and is typically eaten for breakfast or brunch. The dish is high in protein and fiber, and is a popular vegan and vegetarian option.
