“This is a wonderful breakfast or brunch when you wake up ravenous and really need a protein hit. A Saudi friend taught me how to make this. P.S. If you live in the Seattle area, a little store in the Pike Place Market called The Souk sells fava beans in cans; The store has a lot of great food items.”
