Ramadan is a particularly significant month for Muslims، where many take part in fasting from sunrise to sunset. This is one of the five pillars of Islam and is meant to bring you closer to Allah

While not everyone fasts (pregnant women، children، the elderly and the sick are among those exempt)، most Muslims don’t let food or drink pass their lips during daylight hours.

This year Ramadan falls on May 16 in some countries، and on May 17 in others.

“Sada el Balad” news website offers you your Suhoor meal to prepare you for the first day of the holy month of Ramadan:

Fool Medames (Fava Beans)


Ingredients
1 lb dry fave beans.
3 Tbs rice - uncooked.
3 Tbs red lentils.
1 to mato quartered.
3 garlic cloves.

Directions
Soak the beans with water for at least 4 hours، I've soaked mine over night.
Drain the beans and wash very well، put in your slow cooker.
Wash the rice and lentils، drain and add to the beans along with garlic cloves and tomato.
Add enough water to cover. Let it cook on low for 8 hours.

Serving suggestions:
Saute onion rings and tomato in olive oil، add some sausages، stir for 5 minutes then add the beans.
Saute crushed garlic in olive oil along with diced tomato then add the beans. Add salt، cumin and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Recipe Notes
If you cannot find dry fava beans you can use pinto beans as it is the closest taste we've found. Cooking time varies depending on the type of beans so start checking after 6 hours for doneness. Some people like also adding ghee to their beans، but personally I prefer it with olive oil.
