    A great side dish for your mediteranean themed meal, or a hearty meal on the go. This dish is full of fiber and calcium, and tastes great on its own, stuffed into half a pita, or wrapped in lavash.

      These are good!! I had never had fava beans before (only heard Hannibal Lecter talk about them!! :) ) and I found fresh ones to try instead of canned. I blanched them for 10 minutes then shocked them in cold water. I did not remove the outer casing of the inner bean but it was not tough or chewy, it just tasted like the bean. I realized I should have removed the outer part after I had blanched them because they sort of gray up in color but the taste is great!! I liked these with feta and parsley, I used garlic powder instead of fresh and we ate them all up, thanks!!
