Broad Beans Ful

2 comments

A “classic” Middle-Eastern recipe, prepared following the suggestions (but not literally, huh! :lol:) of  “Plenty”, Yotam Ottolenghi’s book.  I had a package of dried broad beans to finish up, and I was returning from a fairly intensive session with my dentist :cry:; the order had been “just liquid or semi-liquid stuff for two days”, so I tried a recipe suitable to my poor teeth, but that was also tasty. Here it is.

Ingredients:
about 300 gr of dried broad beans (shelled)
3 cloves of garlic
juice of 1 small lemon
1 pinch ground cumin
salt
paprika
extra virgin olive oil
red onion for garnish

Method:
The night before I put the beans in water to soak, and a couple of hours before lunch I drained them well and put in the pressure cooker, with about twice their volume of cold water (but I saw that they need less). I let them cook on a low heat for 20 minutes from the whistle, then removed from the heat, letting them evaporate well (I got burnt :roll:); I drained and put them in a bowl where I  coarsely blended them with the hand blender. I let them cool a bit, then I added crushed garlic, lemon juice, cumin (the original recipe called for a heaped teaspoon, but I was afraid that my daughter and my commensal didn’t like it), salt, a good spoonful of oil (again, the recipe called for more, but I wanted to limit the damages ;-)) and a sprinkling of paprika. I mixed it all very well and let it flavour until it was time to serve it. I served it with red onion, finely chopped, seasoned cherry tomatoes and some fried zucchini flowers. I think that also a little of chili, just ground on top of it, would have been good!

    Hi! This dish is very common in the Middle East. Not as common as hummous but still very well known. Very good!
