Fava beans are popular in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines and have an earthy, meaty flavor. These shelled fava beans are easy to use in soups, salads, pastas, dips and the traditional Egyptian dish ful medames.
I can remember learning about the glories of beans in grammar school. I pressed a handful of brightly colored varieties into the dirt and was astounded by the green shoots that sprang forth! My love of beans, with their delicious flavors and hearty nutrition, lives on in these fava beans. I hope you will be inspired to cook a hearty portion of these gourmet legumes for you and yours.
To your good health,
Sort and rinse before cooking.
Basic Cooking Instructions
Stovetop: Rinse beans before cooking; do not soak. Place 1 cup beans in a large pot with 3 cups water and 1 tsp salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until tender, 40-45 minutes. Beans will begin to break apart as they cook. Overcooking may result in mushy beans.
~Makes 4 servings (about 2 1/4 cups).
Note: Pre-soaking, slow or pressure cooking is not recommended, unless a specific recipe requests it.
