Fava Beans (Vicia faba), also commonly known as "broad beans," are a flat, oval, green bean that grows inside a large, inedible pod. A translucent skin also surrounds each individual bean and is often removed prior to use, especially in mature beans. Peeled fava beans are also called habas. The fava bean is thought to have originated in the Middle East and North Africa around 6000 B.C., and has been an important staple of the Eastern Mediterranean diet since ancient times. 

  • Habas can be stewed, boiled, puréed, sautéed or roasted, and the dried beans can even be ground into a flour
  • Often puréed with olive oil and served with bitter greens in the Southern Italian region of Puglia
  • Mash cooked Habas with garlic, cumin, olive oil and lemon juice to make "ful," the national dish of Egypt
  • Whole Habas can be roasted, spiced and eaten as a snack, a common practice in East Asia
  • Add to stews, especially those including lamb, a favorite partner for Habas
  • Toss with olive oil and simply season with onions and garlic or with tomatoes and fresh basil
