This dish is super simple, especially if you make it with frozen produce. If you use fresh artichokes it will take a few minutes more but it is worth the effort. The fava beans or ful as they are known in the middle east can be replaced with lima beans.


olive oil
10 artichoke hearts, cut in to similar in size to the fava beans
300 gr. fresh or frozen fava beans
2 tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup water
5 cloves of garlic, diced
2 tbsp pickled lemon
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cumin (optional)
Atlantic grey sea salt

Heat the oil in a deep pot with a lid. Add the ingredients and bring to a boil. Cook covered for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and boil out the water over a medium flame until you remain with a thick sauce.

Serve over rice or with pita.
