    Carol Bullock's Note:

    This is a wonderful breakfast or brunch when you wake up ravenous and really need a protein hit. A Saudi friend taught me how to make this. P.S. If you live in the Seattle area, a little store in the Pike Place Market called The Souk sells fava beans in cans; The store has a lot of great food items.

      Wow, this was delicious!! My husband and I ate it all in one sitting!! I used a package of vacuum-sealed fava beans from Trader Joe's -- it was only 12 oz. but worked out just fine. I didn't add the potato--it would probably just make it more filling. We ate it with garlic naan bread -- yummy!!!
