Broad beans in tahini sauce / فول بالطحينة
(I use 3 tbsp)
cumin, sumac, and ground chili flakes
Chopped tomatoes and parsley
Broad beans (fava beans)
canned or fresh broad (Fava) beans
If you are using fresh broad beans, boil them in 1.5 litres of water until they are well cooked. Canned beans can be used directly.
In a bowl, add the mashed garlic, salt, and tahini. Mix well.
Add lemon juice, and mix well.
Add the yogurt very gradually while mixing to form a smooth silky sauce. Note: You can replace half of the yogurt’s amount with water for a lighter version.
Add spices and mix.
Drain the beans and add them to the tahini sauce, and mix.
Pour the mixture in your serving plate, and garnish with chopped tomatoes and parsley.
Finish with a generous dash of olive oil. Bon appetit!
Best served with Arabic flat bread (pita)!
