Fava Bean Dip!

This is one of the dishes that I learned when I was working at the Arabic Cafe. We didn't actually serve it but my bosses ate it allot and I love it!

1 can Fava Beans
1 tomato chopped
2 table spoons of onion diced
3 cloves of garlic diced
3 tablespoons of Lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 tablespoons of salt
1/4 table spoon pepper

Cook fava beans on the stove until they start to split open.

While they cook combine all of the other ingredients in bowl and mix well.

Once the beans are cooked drain off most of the extra liquid. Keep some of it though. Mix the beans in with the rest of the ingredients. Serve with warm pita bread as a dip.

Along side in this picture are hummus and stuffed grape leaves.
