FAQs about fava beans
To make fava beans edible, you'll need to remove the clear, waxy shells on the individual beans, as well as the green pods. Place the beans in boiling water for around 30 seconds, then remove them and transfer them to ice water to stop cooking. You should be able to remove the coatings on the beans easily.
Then, you can steam them with olive oil, salt, and lemon juice, fold them into mashed potatoes or hummus, add them to a salad, or place them in a stew. To cook dried fava beans, soak them in room temperature water for 8 to 24 hours. Then, cook them the same way you would cook fresh beans. You won't need to remove the coverings on dried, frozen, or canned beans, and you can also make fava bean flour from dried fava beans.
For most people, fava beans are a very healthy choice. Fava beans are high in protein and fiber, and they can help your digestion and make you feel fuller. They also have iron, magnesium, phosphorous, manganese, and various antioxidants that could help protect you from cancer and heart disease.
People with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PDD), a rare genetic disorder, shouldn't eat fava beans because they can't digest some of their components. These chemicals can build up and eventually lead to anemia and kidney failure. People on some types of antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, and mood stabilizers should avoid fava beans because they can interact with the drugs and cause high blood pressure.
Dried fava beans and lima beans look almost exactly alike, but they have some important differences. Lima beans are native to South American, and they're named after Lima, Peru. When they're fresh, fava beans are larger and greener than lima beans. They have a firmer texture and a stronger taste when cooked, and lima beans are softer and starchier. If you have trouble finding fava beans, you can substitute lima beans in many dishes.
