Fool Em’ala (Fried Beans)

Brought to us by Basil from Howlin’ Roosters

This dish was one of my best friends as a student in university. It’s easy to make, delicious and pretty good for you. This dish can be served hot or cold, each version has a distinct taste and they are both good. Serve it with plain yogurt and pita bread. I like to spice it up with some hot sauce, too. Enjoy.

  • 2 cups, skinned and pre-soaked for 24 hours Beans, Broad
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 tbsp Herb, Parsley

  1. Heat olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat.
