Fava Beans are used in many Italian dishes and have an earthy flavor that is particularly welcome in soups and salads. Our fava beans have been blanched and have had the tough, outer seed coat removed.


For over 5,000 years, fava beans, also known as broad beans, have been a staple in many cultures all over the world. During the early Bronze Age, Mesopotamian farmers began cultivating fava beans, and their fame quickly spread. It wasn't long before fava beans were being enjoyed all across the globe. Fava beans have a buttery texture and a lovely, nutty flavor. Similar to lima beans in taste and texture, they are one of the most flavorful and meaty beans around. They are also a good source of fiber, protein and iron. Bob's Red Mill Fava Beans have been naturally blanched to remove the unsavory skins.

Fava beans are fantastic in appetizers, omelets, soups, casseroles, salads, stuffed in chicken, mashed into dips or spreads and tossed with pasta. See the back of this package for our recipe for Fava Bean Dip, flavored with cilantro, mint and lemon.

3 Reviews For "Fava Beans"

  1. Best quality

    by PCR on 12 Sat,2015


    I use these 1 part blanched fava to 4 parts dried organic garbanzos ground dry in a vitamix then add fresh garlic, parsley and sea salt and herbs and a pinch of baking soda to make an instant GF falafel mix adding water to the mix and letting it set for 20 minutes then frying patties or balls til golden. Everyone raves and wants more. Wish Red Mill would make a handy organic pre-made Falafel mix GF for sale.

  2. Incorrect cooking directions on bag

    by Jim the bean lo on 03 Thu,2011

    I followed the cooking instructions on the package. I did not soak the beans, but put them in a pot 1 cup of beans to 3 cups of water. Brought to a boil, cover, turn down to simmer. I cooked for 1 hour and beans are still very hard.

  3. Excellent product.

    I bought a bag of these beans to try a traditional Egyptian falafel recipe by Claudia Roden. The recipe calls for soaking the favas for 24 hours, then pureeing to a paste in the food processor with the other ingredients. No cooking the beans. I was a skeptic but these beans performed beautifully, pureed to a velvety paste and tasted wonderful. I'm about to order several bags so I can make it whenever the craving strikes. Thanks for such a high-quality, hard-to-find product.
