“Fava beans are not often found on menus and in my opinion are very under rated. When cooked properly they are delicious and offer a nice change from our regular veggies. There are many ways you can enjoy them I just threw this recipe together last night and served them with new carrots, minted peas and peppered prawns. In addition try adding a chopped leek to the stir fry.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Shell the fava beans and boil in lightly salted water for about 6 minutes.
  2. Cool the beans in cold water and remove outer skin on each bean (If you are using canned beans omit these first steps and go right to the next one).
  3. Place fava beans in a well buttered heatproof dish (for vegan use a veggie oil spray to coat the dish).
  4. Saute onion, garlic & tomato in the oil (add hot peppers if using) until just soft.
  5. Pour over the beans & cover with foil.
  6. Bake in 350F degrees oven for 15 minutes.
  7. Remove foil, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  8. Bake under broiler for a few min until cheese is golden.
  9. Serve.
  10. You may wish to mix some bread crumbs with the parmesan or use buttered crumbs as a topping.
  11. Do whatever appeals to your taste buds!
