I thought I was wrong. I had used the joke on another thread about favorite beans and how to cook them.

You can go 2 ways with your favas...... Middle Eastern or Meditarian Itallians use them alot..
and yes like any other bean... In middle eastern I think the recipe is called Moodaham Fuol or fool not sure on the spelling but they are cooked into a stew. But if you go Itallian garlic and tomatoes and however you do your soaking overnight and rinse or the quick method bring them to a boil shut them down and wait an hour put fresh water or stock and cook them down. I have actually seen them fresh in their pods in the middle eastern markets and at whole foods.

OR if your name is Hanible ~ you would want your favas with chianti and a human steak!

I've always looked at them and thought they look so good but have never bought them. I was never sure what to do with them. I will have to try them now.

I've never had them, but they sound good.

Got this from http://www.oceanmist.com/products/favabean

Fava Beans...Fresh, Flavorful
and Fabulous

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.


And saw some recipes here -- I'm sure there are plenty more out there.

Does anyone know much about fava beans, how to prepare them, and whether they are really a whole food? I have seen them, and received a gift box that included a package of beans, but I don't know if they should be cooked like other beans.
