Six little sujik sausages, ready for the grill.
I delved into the pantry at home to pull out something to try with the sujik, and found a tin of hummos with tahina and some fava beans, or foul medammas. You might think hummos in a can is something strange, but believe me this stuff can save you when you need to whip up something quickly. I've seen it in the big supermarkets and anywhere in Auburn/Lakemba for around $1.50 a can, not much more than a tin of chick peas. You can also get baba ganoush.
Basically it is just crushed chick peas and tahina as a nice smooth paste.
I like to add in some fresh crushed garlic and lemon to give it a kick.
The fava beans are meaty beaty big and bouncy. They have a great texture that works really well with salad or as a side. They come in a lemony juice, so there is no need to add too much to them.
Last of all the sausages went on the grill. They split and sizzled and cooked to a dry-ish state, perfect with the hummous and beans and a little green veg wrapped in a fresh piece of pita bread.
Our next trial might be baking them together with eggs, or slicing or crumbling them over home made pizza with haloumi. We also tried the ma'anet, they weren't too mild and had a lovely sweet spiciness to them. The sausages are absolutely delicious, highly recommended.
