"A delicious recipe I learned from an Egyptian friend. If you don't want a strong garlic taste, feel free to cook the garlic with the onion. You can stuff this mixture into a pita, add a dollop of plain yogurt, and enjoy!"

Fantastic! I added about tsp of cumin, but made no other changes. Made a great lunch served on a whole wheat pita. Thanks for the recipe.

I used a substitute for fava beans, lima beans. Basically, this is a hummus recipe, and I love hummus! This is very tasty!

great, simple weeknight quickie. I added cumin and coriander. Also, I was out of lemon juice so I used white wine vinegar, tasted great!
