I have been missing in action due to working, and seeing friends before going to Norway to visit my family tomorrow! I haven't been since last August, so I am quite excited about seeing everyone again!
I manage to fit in a school reunion, national Norway day, Eurovision and a trip to Oslo! It will be so good *smiles*
So I thought I would post a recipe that I have slightly tweaked, and also this time I got a better photo. This is an Egyptian dish and it simply melts in the mouth! Have it as part of a mezze, or with toasted pitta - you wont be disappointed!
When I spoke to the owners of an Egyptian restaurant here in Glasgow, they said - the secret is lots of garlic and butter! But who says that can't be vegan butter?
Vegan Foul Mudammas
2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne
Pinch of smoked paprika
Dash of salt
4 tbsp tomato puree
400g can butter beans
50g vegan spread
Handful fresh coriander, chopped - to garnish
- Start by heating the oil in a frying pan and sautee the onion for about five minutes. Add garlic and cook for a further minute, stirring continuously.
- Now add your spices and stir until fragrant, before tipping in the tomato puree, water and beans. Stir until you have a smooth blend and heat through.
- Finally, add the vegan butter and stir until it is fully incorporated, mash lightly with a masher - you want to see some of the beans in the end! stir in half the coriander. Toast some pita bread and serve with the remaining coriander on top!
I hope you are well, and forever trying new recipes! What has been your favourite recently?
Anyway, I will be checking in again in just over a week's time, until then <3
