Foul Baladi (Egyptian Fava Beans) by "Nakhly" - 1KG
It is probably the oldest edible plant in the Western world, which entered the local menus as early as the biblical period.
The dark and beloved stew served on top of hummus or as a dip, is made from this bean, which is considered the national dish of Egypt, where falafel is also made from it. Meaning it is possible and worthwhile to prepare a wide and delicious variety of great dishes.
The dry bean, like any legume, is high in protein and low in calories. It is rich in dietary fiber and contains essential minerals like calcium, iron and potassium. It has a nutty and sweet taste and a soft texture, especially when peeled before cooking.
