How to Make Egyptian ful medames (stewed fava beans)
The pyramids aren't the only exotic treats offered by Egypt. Though the country is famous for its towering, almost as high up as the sun pyramid peaks, taking a trip to Egypt will also show you a plentiful variety of exotic foods that are both delicious and healthy.
One of these traditional foods is ful medames, stewed fava beans. As part of your diet, beans help to keep you fuller longer with copious amounts of fiber. So even if you can't catch the next plane to Egypt, you can at least enjoy one of their prized foodstuffs.
