Ful Medames (Fava Bean Stew)

Ful Medames (Fava Bean Stew)

Ful Medames (Fava Bean stew) is a breakfast that is very popular in the middle east. I tend to make a  stewversion and have it as my main meal because it is so delicious and hearty. Ful or Foul (pronounced fool) is a vegan, gluten free stew made up of Fava beans. On a recent trip to Saudi, it was served alongside the usual breads/eggs/fruits at breakfast daily. I have come across many variations of Ful and this version has become very popular in our home. You simply have to try it to understand why!

Maple chicken thighs

Maple chicken thighs

How are we on this wet and windy morning? Is it wet and windy where you are? The weather has been interesting lately with some very hot and humid days followed by the loudest thunder and lightening i have ever heard. The lightening was so bad that it broke a cupboard in our back garden that was ready for the skip. With one bolt it became a flat pack. Oh well, easier to transport. On to the food. Maple chicken thighs are a little different to the food I usually eat and with them being so delicious and sweet, it’s a hit with the kids too. To kind of balance out the sweetness, i serve mine with some kale, lightly cooked in lemon and garlic. On occasion, i also serve it with corn on the cob because i just love sweetcorn.

I have been making this Molasses chicken for a while now. It is so yummy with some fragrant rice or bulgar salad. The chicken is dark, subtly spiced and delicious.

Chicken shawarma Salad

Chicken shawarma Salad

I know i said i would have this chicken shawarma salad recipe up over the weekend, so i apologise that it is a little late. I promise that it is worth the wait. It is absolutely delicious. This may not be the most authentic shawarma recipe because it isn’t cooked on a rotisserie but i think it works well as a salad. The rotisserie method isn’t alway accessible. I have used all the flavours of a shawarma and baked it in the oven followed by a short blast under the grill. This recipe is for a salad, although of course you could eat it as a sandwich or naanwich ;).  If i was making a lamb version, i would use a griddle instead. I have made this with both chicken breast and thighs and would recommend you use thighs but if you are watching what you eat, then breast would be better and it also cooks quicker (Halve the time and keep an eye on it as it can dry out).
