This hot curry is a variation on a recipe for a mild chickpea and sweet potato curry from Nigel Slater’s excellent Kitchen Diaries. With their firm texture and nutty taste our black badger peas make a superb British-grown alternative to chickpeas.
Fool, ful or even foul – however you spell it ful medames (fava bean stew) is a classic of world cuisine: hearty, simple, sustaining and delicious it’s perfect at any time of day but really comes into its own first thing in the morning. It’s the breakfast of kings or, perhaps more accurately, of pharoahs.
Split dried fava beans make a delicious alternative to chickpeas as the basis for hummus, with the great advantage that they don’t need soaking and quickly cook to a creamy consistency without the need for a food processor.
