Hummus made with typical Egyptian fava beans is a staple food of the Egyptian diet. It is a refreshing light version of the classical hummus made with chickpeas. Shell the fava beans and boil for about 20 minutes. When they have cooled, peel and cream in the blender. Then blend with the tahini sauce, some lemon juice, one garlic pod, a few mint leaves and, finally, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil to jazz up the flavour of this sauce..
