Middle Eastern Black Bean Ful. Add rice and some sautéed greens and you will have an amazing, satisfying meal that people will rave about for a long, long time. Easy and absolutely packed with flavor.
Middle Eastern Black Bean Ful is another terrific vegan recipe based on a Moosewood Collective recipe. It comes from their Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites cookbook, and it is simply called “Ful.” I absolutely love this recipe.
What is Ful?
Ful is a traditional Egyptian/Middle Eastern/North African dish comprised generally of Fava Beans, fresh tomatoes, onions, garlic, lemon and spices. I substituted Black Beans because I like them and I didn’t have any Fava Beans. And the result was terrific. The flavors just burst in your mouth. And it only takes 25 minutes to make it.
What to Serve With Ful
Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites suggests ideas for pairing this Ful as a side dish with other foods, but I find that this bean dish is excellent on its own. Add some Sautéed Greens, a piece of fruit and a bit of Amazing Gluten Free French Bread or some rice, and you have a fabulous supper. Filling, delicious, low fat, vegetarian and easy. What more can you want?
What You Need
I love Moosewood cookbooks. The recipes are always amazing. No matter what cookbook you use. Lately I have been buying the jarred minced garlic. It’s such a time saver. Every kitchen should have the very best tools you can afford. For this recipe, you need a knife, cutting board, measuring cups and spoons, and good set of pots and pans.
