What is Ful Medames?

Ful medames is a staple, comfort food served across the Middle East and North Africa often eaten for breakfast. Every country, and even some cities, have their own recipe for ful. Some put different spices or vegetables in, but I’m giving you a standard, simple recipe that you can embellish.

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Optional – tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, pita bread

How to Make this Delicious Recipe

  • Add all ingredients to a slow cooker and cook for 8 to 8.5 hours on low. 
  • After cooking, transfer the contents to a blender. Blend on low for 15 seconds or pulse 3 to 4 times, till the mixture is mostly blended. 
  • Transfer to bowls and serve warm, with cucumbers, tomatoes, and warm pita bread.
