Surprisingly easy to cook from scratch, this traditional Egyptian dish, made with Split Fava Beans, is delicious as a snack or meze.
Hodmedod's version of the classic Egyptian ful medames, which went down very well at the Aldeburgh Food Festival in 2012 when we offered samples to show off the potential of British-grown Whole Fava Beans.
It's not strictly hummus - which literally means chickpeas - but this quick, easy and delicious ful nabed dip makes a great alternative. Made with Split Fava Beans with no need to soak, it can be cooked from scratch in 30 to 40 minutes. Best served warm!
