 Product Description

Fava Bean Succotash

SHILOH FARMS Fava Beans have a distinctly nutty flavor and smooth, buttery texture. Delightful served simply with olive oil, salt, and lemon, fava beans (also called broad beans) add sumptuousness to dishes as varied as dips, salads, risottos, and pasta.

Not only do they taste delicious, fava beans are also nutrition all-stars! Virtually fat-free, they are an excellent, low-calorie source of plant protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Fava beans are especially high in folate, manganese, and iron and provide healthy amounts of thiamin, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, zinc, and potassium. 

One of the earliest cultivated crops (over 8,000 years ago!), fava beans were a major part of Ancient Greek and Roman diets along with lentils, garbanzo beans, and peas. They remain a staple throughout the Mediterranean and are also a popular ingredient in Latin American, Asian, and African cuisines.

Fava beans should be peeled before eating. While the outer peel of the beans is technically edible, it has a woody texture that detracts from the rich creaminess of the inner bean.

To Cook: Sort and rinse. Cover 1 part beans with about 3 parts water and soak overnight. Drain and peel the outer skin off of each bean. Add peeled beans to 3 parts water or stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 35-40 minutes, or until done to your preference.  

Test frequently during cooking, then come to your own decision about when beans are tender and taste "done." Remember, intended use dictates desired tenderness. It is better to cook beans to a firm stage for salads, freezing, and longer-cooking recipes. If you plan to puree or mash the beans, cook until very soft.

Suggestions: 
1. Mashed and season cooked beans, then spread on crostini for a simple, but elegant, appetizer.
2. Puree beans with fresh herbs for use in dips and spreads.
3. Favas are often paired with artichokes or other spring vegetables, such as peas and morels.
4. The nutty flavor of favas tastes great in soups and stews.
5. Fava beans are also great in salads, sautés, and pasta dishes.
6. Cook with fresh herbs, onions, and garlic to enhance their flavor.
