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!

Chicken and sweetcorn soup

Chicken and sweetcorn soup

I was never a soup person but all that changed about three years ago. My husband loves soup and we now go through months of having soup every afternoon. Of all the soups i make, this ranks second for him. His first love is this french onion soup. For me, this chicken and sweetcorn soup ranks first. I  add a lot of chillies in this soup because that is how i love it. Please feel to reduce the chillies though!
