Ful Medames (Fava Bean Soup)

Ful Medames (Fava Bean Soup)

Ful Medames (Fava Bean stew) is a breakfast that is very popular in the middle east. I tend to make a soupier version 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.
