    Also known as Broad Bean, Fava beans are large, about 1 ¼ inches long, oval shape, thicker at the bottom end. They are light brown, with a dark line where the ridge is split. Fava beans have a creamy texture with a nutty flavour.

  • Directions

    Rinse 1 cup beans. Pour into boiling water and cover. Soak for 6 hours. Drain and discard soaking water. Add 4 cups fresh water to cook beans. Simmer over low heat until tender, about 40-60 minutes.

  • Uses

    Fava beans are common in Middle Eastern, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese cuisine. They are good in soups and stews, as a side dish, in cold salads, or processed into a hummus-like dip.
