Lebanese Bean Salad

Hello Ladies,

First, allow me to apologize for being so late in posting… I guess my time management is not as good as I  thought it was…

Taking care of 🐼 Panda 🐼, your brother/son, the house, work…So much to do and we only have one child. All of this makes me think of you Jan, and how your time management skills must have been amazing with 3 children!! I truly admire you!


So this week I have decided to share with you a dish that we traditionally have for breakfast back home, but it is definitely something that you can have for brunch or lunch. It is super easy to make, the hard part being finding the right can of beans. I would go to a Lebanese grocery store, or maybe it could  also be found in the #cuisine du monde part of supermarkets? I am not sure.

We had this dish together with my mom, Thomas, and Bethie and the Man for Lebanese Brunch. It was awesome!

That is why the pictures  (Courtesy of Beth :)) look so pretty !!
Thank you Beth! ❤️

So enough talk, here is the recipe:

Start by heating up the beans in a pan. When they are heated up, use a fork to gently mash them. Add a mashed garlic clove (a small one) to the puree and cut  some fresh tomato and parsley  to put  on top. Add lemon and salt to taste.

Et voila! It is ready.

Next time I will share with you 2 other recipes from this brunch, one of which includes … zaatar!!

Happy Halloween everyone! 🎃

Lots of love from Barcelona,

    That brunch was so delicious! I’m excited to have this recipe and can’t wait for the other 2. This is totally motivating me to go to Super Gaudi (our local Middle Eastern grocer) to buy some amazing ingredients 🙂

    Hi there, this sounds like a really nice change and you know I love savory things for breakfast (I’ll skip the jam, thanks). I have a couple of thoughts of where I could find those beans but I’ wondering if you have any ideas for substitutions. In the picture, it looks like there is quite a lot of liquid. Is that from the can or do you put some oil and lemon??? Hungry Mothers-in-law want to know!
    ps. I don’t remember much about time management-I was just coping one day at a time.

    That table spread of food looks insane- and YES- I’ll admit I saw the zaatar bread and it took me a few seconds to focus on the fact that the recipe was for the bean salad. I can’t tell you how excited I am about the zaatar.

    Anyways- like I said- that whole table is stunning. I have a question for the beans you used- the tin says Foul Medamas- which is firstly hilarious, but secondly, I don’t know what the bean is? Is it white beans? I can’t find that tin here.

    Zaatar. I still have some…must use….need recipe…..Zaatar. OK- I’ll get help 🙂
