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!
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!
This Bok choi and chicken soup is wonderfully fragrant and light. It is packed full of flavour and is a great recipe for using up leftover vegetables. You can add any vegetables to the mix really – potatoes/leeks/mushrooms etc etc. You could also add noodles to it as i sometimes do.
This here Moong daal soup is a staple meal in my house and a lot of houses of an asian background. Some people cook the moong daal in a pressure cooker. Not me though. See a few years ago I had a very unfortunate accident with a pressure cooker so thanks but no thanks!
