Let's Eat! Saudi Arabia Breakfast

This enormous jug shaped pot is used for making foul, a mix of a variety of mashed up beans that is popular for breakfast (or any time, actually) in Saudi Arabia.

The foul is eaten with a flat bread called tameez.  Tameez can vary according to the regions of origin. Bite-size pieces of tameez are torn off the loaf and dipped into the foul.

Tameez is baked in a special round oven shaped like a beehive. The bread sticks to the inside wall of the oven.

A loaf of tameez usually costs one riyal (about 25 cents US) and a tub of the foul to go with it costs about 3 riyals (about 75 cents US).

Interesting to see this, and explain the entire process, especially the part about bread being stuck to the walls. I'll have to look for 'foul' to see what this is like, although I would have avoided it based on the English name before!

Very different from what I'm used to! Excellent choice for the theme!

Thanks for your comments, gentlemen. Foul is actually pronounced like FOOL.
