Whole fava beans are widely used in the Mediterranean, Middle East and North Africa. They’re the main ingredient in the traditional Egyptian dish of ful medames and Sicilian maccu soup.

Summary

More Information

The fava bean is Great Britain’s original bean, and has been grown here since the Iron Age. Delicious, nutritious and good for the soil, fava beans are a variety of broad bean, Vicia faba, left to ripen and dry before harvest. They’re also known as field beans, horse beans, Windsor beans or ful.

Flava beans are also available in a split-dried variation which are easy to cook and don’t need soaking. Hodmedods include these in their Organic Split Dried Flava Beans, which can be found here.

Directions of use

Directions

Whole fava beans should be soaked overnight (don’t add salt as it can toughen the skin but bicarbonate of soda will soften the beans), then rinsed, covered with plenty of water, brought to the boil and simmered for 45 to 60 minutes before use. The thick skins will become very tender through long slow cooking. These beans are a delicious addition to casseroles, stews, salads, curries or in other dishes in place of other beans.
