In response to a previous request, I found this recipe in "The Frugal
Gourmet on our Immigrant Ancestors" by Jeff Smith. I have not tried it. The
_ful_ are small Egyptian dried beans, according to Smith. I understand that
you can use fava beans. Who knows? maybe they are the same thing.

Place the beans (_ful_) in a medium pot and add 4 cups of water. Bring to
a boil, turn off the heat, and let stand 1 hour, covered. Drain.

Return the _ful_ to the pot and add 4 cups of fresh water. Bring to a
boil, covered, and reduce to a simmer. Cook 15 minutes or until the beans
are tender. Drain.

Mix the beans with the tomato, garlic, parsley, and union. Prepare the
dressing and toss with the vegetables. Chill before serving.
