Despite the recipe’s name, these fava beans are nothing like the ones used in Western cooking. This addictive dish uses beans called foul mudammas, which are available in cans at Lebanese groceries. If you can’t find them, chickpeas are the best substitute.

I used chickpeas because I couldn't find foul mudammas. The smell of this while cooking is wonderful. The taste is good, texture is okay (I think the favas would have a better texture for this dish) but it's nothing extraordinary. I wouldn't make it again.
I first ate this delicious dish at a Lebanese restaurant and loved it. However, at $14.95 I thought it was WAY too expensive for a dish that consisted of beans and vegetables. So I decided to make it myself.This recipe is good, but seemed too dry. My changes were:1. Cut the amount of onions in half.2. Add some tomato paste and water to the mixture.3. Put in a shallow baking dish, top with feta cheese and bake at 350 until bubbly. I had to add more water during the baking process.
