Ok. I've heard a lot of talk recently about fava beans so I finally found some at our International market. Searching the Internet I wasn't really able to come up with a recipe that I thought my husband would eat without giving me a fight so I made up my own. We both loved it. The fava beans add a rich buttery flavor and are a very rich source of vitamins and fiber. I hope you will give it a try and let me know what your think too.
