Ful Mudammas

Nothing says breakfast (or lunch…or dinner…) like a warm bowl of creamy, earthy fava beans seasoned with lemon, garlic, and jalapeño pepper, and topped with olive oil. 
Ful Mudammas is an authentic Egyptian dish, dating back millennia, but has long been eaten throughout the Middle East, where it’s not only cooked at home, but also sold in many little ful shops. Each area and home has a slightly different recipe and accompanying vegetables, but it is always eaten with warm pita bread and hot tea. Unfortunately, delicious as tea is with ful, it actually blocks the body from absorbing the iron in these beans. 
As I have yet to bake my own gluten-free pita, I ate this with a spoon!
