In the city of millions there are many things you encounter every day. Cars, dust, smudgy kids begging and beans. Beans are everywhere in Egypt, from the traditional breakfast of foul to the snacks to nibble on.

One of those traditional treats to munch on are termes, or lupin beans. They are served cooked or pickled from little carts on street corners and on the bridges spanning the Nile to enjoy as you look out over the water next to your glass of tea.

Shops sport mountains of termes, dried chickpeas and other assorted beans and seeds known as leb.
