Organic Fava Bean “Feves” – Limited Quantity

$149 by kg

Fava beans are one of the oldest domesticated food legumes. References to favas occur in both the Talmud and the Mishna, indicating they have been part of the Middle Eastern diet since at least since the 4th century. Beans are a great source of fiber, protein, fiber, iron, B vitamins, potassium, magnesium and many other beneficial nutrients. If you have never tried fresh fava beans, they’re really special– they have a mild, creamy flavor that compliments many spring dishes. Fresh from the pod they are bright green and very pretty. They have a short season, though.

Origin: France or Italy
Packaging:  kraft bag
Storage:   keep cold in the fridge
Usage: Small, young pods can sometimes be eaten whole, but beans are typically removed from the pod. Beans are shelled by snapping the stem end off of the pod and pulling the attached string. Pop out the beans and repeat with the remaining pods. Fresh, shelled fava beans are often blanched to make removing the tough clear skin easier. To peel the blanched beans, use your thumb to pop open the top of the skin at the bean’s dimple and remove. Once the prep work is out of the way, the beans can be used as is or cooked further, depending on the recipe. Fava beans can be eaten raw, boiled, steamed, stewed, mashed, sautéed, fried, or roasted.
