Description

Fava or Faba Beans are one of the oldest domesticated food legumes. They have been part of the Middle Eastern diet since at least since the 4th century.

 

We started growing them as part of our crop rotation some 30 years ago.

 

They are a great source of protein, fibre, iron, B vitamins, potassium, magnesium and many other beneficial nutrients.

 

Dried faba beans, when cooked and peeled, have a texture similar to cooked chickpeas but slightly softer.

 

Dried faba beans can be enjoyed year-round. They are more economical than canned beans, and when you soak and cook them they do not contain unnecessary additives like sodium (plus you don’t have to worry about potentially toxic BPA can linings).

 

Most forms of fava beans need to be peeled before eating, unless they have already been prepped. It’s a time-consuming process, but not difficult at all.  We have outlined the peeling process in our recipe section.

 

Uses

Great for salads, sides, curry, casseroles or in risotto.
