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.

Ingredients:

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
pepper

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.

Enjoy!
