In the spirit of "hey we never go out for dinner" we decided to order an appetizer that included hummus, baba ganoush, and foul medames. I had never heard of foul medames but the sweet server told me it was a fava bean dip. You guys, it was ah-mazing. So good. Joel only had a bite or two - I let him have the other dips. I'm a giver.
Anywho, I decided to give it a whirl at home. I did some digging into recipes and found there is great variation. Also, interestingly different Middle Eastern countries eat this dip with various toppings. I opted to go the Egyptian route and make it for a high protein breakfast and topped with hard boiled eggs or as I preferred a poached egg.
This business was so good. I'm not quiet ready to trot out a recipe yet but I will whip it up again to make some tweeks and then I'll share my preferred recipe.
Have you tried a new food yet? Been inspired by a dish you had out that you had to recreate at home?
