I love to eat ful medames or fūl Müdemmis (فول مدمّس).
Ful medames is a very tasty and healthy dish made out of beans.
This dish is actually from Egypt but it is popular in Sudan and Saudi Arabia too.
It is made from fava beans.
We eat ful medames with onion, garlic, tomatoes, olive slices, tahini, lime, olive oil and Arabian flat bread and falafel.
How to cook ful medames:
Cook the fava beans with olive oil and garlic.
When the beans are cooked, mash the beans.
Then, serve the ful.
Add some olive oil before eating our ful.
I also like to eat falafel (فلافل) with ful, so my mother will cook falafel whenever she cooks ful.
Falafel is also a healthy food that originated from Egypt.
Falafel is made from chickpeas.
Ful reminds me of chili con carne because it is a bean dish too.
My mother taught me about good fats and bad fats.
Good fats are Omega-6 and Omega-3 fats.
Bad fats are saturated fats.
The really bad fat is trans fat.
Trans fat is processed fat made by human.
Fish, seeds, nuts and olive oil have lots of good fats.
Some chips, some margarine, some cookies, some fast food, some cakes and some junk food have lots of bad fats.
Do not eat too much bad fats even if they are very tasty.
Eat good fats.
My mother taught me to read the food labels and to choose food that says ‘no trans fat’.
Anyway junk food are bad but very tasty 🙂
