In my last post, I shared how to shell fava beans with step-by-step
photos. Now I want to share a couple of recipes using those delicious fava beans. Yesterday at our local farmers market, there was a heaping basket full of fava beans, bright green and as fresh as can be. Looking for new inspiration on how to use these lovely beans, I found the following recipes. The only question is which recipe to try first!
3. Fava Bean Pasta e Fagioli
: For something a little lighter and heavier in the vegetable kingdom, why not combine fava beans with pasta and vegetables in a soup?
5. Fava Bean Soup
: This soup is pureed, making a creamy, fava bean-centered soup.
Do you have any favorite ways to serve fava beans? I'd love to hear!
