Easy Vegan Foul (gluten- free, high protein and fiber)

Fava beans or broad beans are a very common stable in the Arab as well as African world since ancient times as it gives a great supply of protein, dietary fiber, potassium and much more! Fava beans are available as fresh produce only in spring and are commonly used as dried beans or canned ones. I always souk and boil my own beans and freeze them in small packs; in this way it is very easy to avoid canned ones. This is a easy vegan high protein breakfast and prepared in less then 15 min.
