I love fava beans! Here at home is always a war at this time of year … I want to eat them and my husband starts twisting his nose … peas is the same thing! So the challenge of making him like eating fava beans is much harder than making a good recipe with them. I finally found the solution. I just have to take off their sking and the matter is resolved.
To do this just put a pot of salted water to boil. Prepare a pot with cold water and ice.
When the water starts bubbling place the peeled fava beans and let be there for 1 minute (or until the skin begins to crack). Then remove them and place them in the bowl with the iced water .
It’s very simple . The peeled fava beans are very good in salads (no need to cook them any longer) , or if it is to incorporate into a soup , put them to boil for a few more minutes with the remaining vegetables . Success guaranteed!
