Ful Medames (4)

A spicy bean stew which is often eaten for breakfast throughout the Middle East and North Africa. In 1980 I spent a month in Egypt staying in youth hostels and with very little money, and this is what we ate, daily. This version is from ” The Little Book of Brunch” by Caroline Craig and Sophie Missing.

Eggs Bhurji (4)

An Indian breakfast dish to serve with roti or naan, or on toast. This version is from “Towpath:Recipes and Stories” by Lori de Mori and Laura Jackson. Towpath is an outdoor cafe on the Regents Canal in London which opened in 2016 and which i am very much looking forward to visiting on my next visit to London.
