Many of you know that in addition to mosaics, ancient history, and wine, I am a bit of a foodie. One thing that surprised me when I arrived in Egypt was how different the falafel are here. I was surprised to find that it was bright green inside, instead of the usual pale yellowish beige of chickpeas. A brief bit of research indicated that this is because Egyptian falafel, as opposed to falafel in other Middle Eastern countries are made with fava beans, and not the standard chickpeas. 
The falafels can be seen here on the bottom left.
