Ingredients
  • 1can ful muddamasdrained
  • 1/2cup diced onion
  • 1clove garlicminced
  • 1tsp cumin powder
  • 1cup tomato sauce
  • 1tbsp parsleychopped
  • salt
  • Pepper
  • olive oil
  • cayenne pepper(optional)
Instructions
  1. Drain can of ful mudammas. Using a fork, mash the beans gently. Mashing the beans makes for a thicker consistency.
  2. In a small pot, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil over medium/high heat. Saute onion and garlic. Once they become translucent, add cumin and toast briefly until fragrant. Then add 1/2 cup of tomato sauce. If you like, you can add a pinch of cayenne pepper. Let simmer until it has a thick consistency. Essentially, you want all the excess liquid to come out of the tomato sauce.
  3. Add the ful mudammas and the remainder of the tomato sauce to the pot. Add 1 tsp of salt and pepper (or to taste). Once the mixture begins to bubble, reduce heat and cover. Let cook for at least 10 minutes.
  4. Add chopped parsley and stir it into the mixture prior to serving. Serve with warm pita. Enjoy!
