Mmmmm Fava Beans! I bought cans of them, and dried beans for planting too. Recently, when tending my garden, a couple leaves broke off, well, I had to try them while brief thoughts of ' are the poisonous' crossed my mind. These thoughts were quickly allayed by the tender buttery taste of these delightful top leaves. Yes, I'll be back for more. And here's a recipe using the leaves, as I found myself still alive and feeling strong enough to google search. I plan to use the leaves in salad primarily because cooking (above 118) removes nutrients and active enzymes from the food.
I am very excited to finally be growing them and enjoying them in many dishes. I'm doing a hummus next!
