⚽ World Cup 2018 Game 17 – Russia vs. Egypt

Beets are synonymous with Russian comfort food and they strike a pose when they are highlighted in the prominent Egyptian breakfast of ful medames.  Tossed in a garlic and citrus dressing with hints of aromatic cumin, the beets replace the traditional beans to bring a textural tender, but firmness, to each bite. The BEET FUL MEDAMES is a wonderful breakfast for Pharoahs and Tsars alike.
