Fava Beans...Fresh, Flavorful
With their rich, meaty flavor, Fava Beans are the true stars of the legume family. You may have had them canned, dried, or frozen, but you really haven’t had Fava Beans until you’ve savored them fresh and tender, direct from the field. They’re such a delectable seasonal treat, connoisseurs who discover fresh spring Fava Beans have arrived at their market will completely re-arrange that night’s dinner menu to accommodate these marvelous beans. Much of the joy of Fava Beans comes from their versatility: fantastic by themselves, but also spectacular in combination with other ingredients in the creation of sumptuous dishes. A staple of Italian cooking, Fava Beans make superb dips and other appetizers, but they’re also great in salads, sauces, sautés, stews, pastas and risottos.
The Fava Bean is actually an old-world tradition that is growing in popularity with knowledgeable cooks in the 21st Century. For sheer longevity, you’d be hard-pressed to find a food that dates back further. They’ve been found in some of the earliest-known human settlements. Most often associated with Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern cuisines, the Chinese have also enjoyed them for more than 5,000 years. Fava Beans are also known by an amazing variety of other names: Broad Beans, Windsor Beans, Horse Beans and even Pigeon Beans. By any name, Fava Beans are among the all-time great culinary vegetables.
