Ingredients blanched, skinned fava beans*Manufactured in a facility that also uses tree nuts, soy, wheat, and milk

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.

Details

So what are fava beans? 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 cooking fava beans became popular all across the globe. Cooking dried fava beans gives them 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.

Very surprised and very happy
I was a bit leery of the idea of fava beans, only having Hannibal Lecter as a reference. But I cooked up a pot per the package instructions with just water and salt, and then added some spicy Italian sausage at the end. The result was a tasty porridge, much like split pea soup in flavor. A definite winner!

Quality product and very flavorful.
Excellent product. Fava beans are a great change of pace from the standard legumes like black beans and brown lentils. I made a super healthy and yummy vegan soup with the beans, white potatoes, sweet potatoes, spinach and tomato puree.

Quite good
The fava beans were quite good - very easy, also. If I measured the water correctly, then it asks for too much. I cooked them a bit too long expecting the water to be mostly gone. Of course, extra water can be saved and used in making soups and broths.

Sad to receive these
I love this company but was terribly disappointed in my fava beans. When i received my package, they were crushed into pieces. I don't intend to use them unless i need a soup thickener. Very disappointed this time

super disagree with printed cooking instructions
unless they're supposed to be chalky and kinda hard when you eat them, bob's should really consider updating the cooking instructions. some light googling revealed that i am not the only person who had this experience.

Best quality
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.

Already shelled which is a time consuming task (especially if cooking from scratch on all else), hard to find in stores, HIGH protein content for vegan health, sustainable packaging.

Fava beans cook quickly, without the need for pre-soaking, and are great in soups, dips and roasted.

I have been purchasing Fava Beans from Bob's Red Mill for some time.

They are of excellent quality and the fact that they are shelled makes preparation simple and convenient.
Peter s on Nov 13, 2017
Fava beans are not easy to find out of season and I'm looking forward to trying the dried version!
Amy C on Nov 5, 2017
So much nutritional punch in a bean that tastes wonderful. Has a nice, meaty consistency, in my opinion.

I thought Fava beans might be good for making hummus instead of garbanzo beans. Have you tried it, or know anyone who has? I'm worried about the cosistency of the Fava beans after "reconstitution."
Leslie Ann F on May 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! This would work great in that type of recipe, you can check our our recipe called "Fava Bean Dip" on our recipe site.
I have a recipe for Egyptian falafel which calls for split fava beans. Are these split fava beans?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The majority of beans will be whole though some may have split during processing and handling.
Are these beans large?
paul s on Jan 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is a large bean.
