      Love it, love it, love it and it's easy :) I made this and had it for brekkie and I must say it's so nice to have something that's not sweet of a morning like cereal or something similar. A couple of points for me next time would probably be to cook the onion a bit beforehand as I still found it a bit raw for my liking may just be that I have a healthy appetite but I found this better as a serve for 2 not 4 but then I did omit the tomatoes because I'm not supposed to eat those :( Thanks for posting!

      I have lived for more than a year in Sudan and Ethiopia, places where fool (or ful, or even "foul"...) are a daily staple, mainly at breakfast. I have seen quite a lot of varieties, but all of them had one thing in common: they were made with some sort of brown or red bean. This variation with fava beans was an interesting excursion, which I quite liked. I made it also with lima beans, which I like best in the end, as its results in a nicer texture. Don't use pita bread -- a crusty but spongy white bread works best.
