Dried Fava Beans are a staple of Mediterranean cooking
Pan-fry these dried beans for a simple side dish, or toss them in a soup or stew.
Cook fava beans in a variety of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern recipes.
Sanniti Fava Beans are an important ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine. Also called "broad beans," they are most often enjoyed in soups and stews, or even just as a street snack when they've been fried and salted. Beans and legumes are a great source of protein and fiber and are part of any healthy diet. In certain dishes such as falafel, you can use these beans as an alternative to chickpeas.
Try adding these to a zesty bean salad. Use them to top toasted bread with fresh herbs and olive oil. Serve them as a side dish with roasted chicken or salmon. Or enjoy them in a grain bowl with fresh veggies, brown rice, or quinoa. You can even mash fava beans into a paste, then mix them with a smooth cheese for a tangy dip. Perfect for serving on a charcuterie platter. These still have the outer skin.
