Made this for brunch today. Delicious with warm crusty french bread like you suggested.

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!!!

I have been using this recipe on and off for about 6 years. I love it every time. I usually use dried favas which I soak for a day or two in advance. It's always a big hit with guests. It stores well for a few days and warms up quick in the microwave. Thanks for the recipe!

This is a good version of foul mudammes. I still have another favorite though, Foul Medammes With Dill (Masr). I used Cedar brand canned cooked fava beans. Make sure to use the small beans not the really big ones at least unless you are going to peel them, I used less chili powder (the mixed spice kind), Iraqi Curry Powder, no turmeric as it is already in Iraqi Curry Powder, freshly squeezed lemon juice, sea salt, no optional potato, plus the rest of the ingredients including a good olive oil swirled over top. Served warm with rice crackers as a part of suhoor (the meal before dawn and fajr prayer in the month of Ramadan) I may make this again.

Love Middle Eastern food in general, and Foul is no exception. Made this, but with a couple of alterations. Used dried beans (cheaper & better than canned) and didn't have a spud so used a bit of sweet potato, which goes really well with this spice mix. Must have been good as I took some of what was left to the Iraqui guys who run my local fish shop, and they gave me a discount on that day's fish. Thanks for the recipe.

This dip was very easy to make and so tasty. The mix and flavour of all the spices is fantastic. My DH and I enjoy dips as a quick snack and often take them to work with some crackers or vegetable sticks. It will definitely be added to our list of favourites. Thanks for sharing it with us! :)
