Fava beans (brown broad beans) are refreshing in this dish and a great addition for a Lebanese mezze. You can either eat it warm or cold, I prefer it warm. If you do not serve it warm, then at least serve it a room temperature. If foul is not automatically included in a mezze, I ask for it. No foul, no that’s impossible.

White beans can be tasteful, they incorporate perfectly the tastes that surround them. This salad is nice for lunch, as a side dish or part of a mezze of course.


  • For the foul
  • 1 can fava beans

  • 1-2 lemons

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 3 spring onions

  • 1 bouquet flat parsley

  • 0,25 bouquet mint

  • salt and pepper

  • White bean salad
  • 1 red pepper

  • 2 sticks celeriac

  • 1 red onion

  • 4 spring onions

  • 1 can white beans

  • 1 bouquet flat parsley

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 table spoon tahina/ sesame paste

  • 2 table spoons za’atar

  • 1 tea spoon smoked paprika powder

  • 0,5 tea spoon white pepper

  • 1 lemon (juice)

  • salt and pepper


  • For the Foul: Mix all ingredients and warm it up in a little pan. Serve it in a bowl with some Arabic bread. It is a indispensable dish for a mezze.
  • For the white bean salade: Cut the peppers in small dices. Cut the celeriac in small dices and the spring onions in slices. Cut the parsley and bring everything together in a salad bowl.
  • Bring the lemon juice, the tahina, the garlic, za’atar, salt and peper in a blender. Pour it over the salad and let all the flavours work together for an hour. Outside the fridge. Cold salads do not taste nice, is what I think.
