Fava Beans


This Mediterranean legume comes in beautiful bright green pods and is known for its creamy, buttery flavor and smooth texture. While the beans can be a bit of a chore to peel, the extra effort is worth the terrific source of satiating fiber (9 grams per 1 cup serving) hidden inside. Fava beans are also an excellent source of vegetarian protein, making it a nutritious addition to soups, salads, pastas, and so much more — the possibilities are endless!
