Ingredients for 5 people:

  • 500 grams of peeled fava beans
  • Half an onion
  • Two thick slices of bread cut into cubes
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt to taste

Preparation:

Wash the beans and put them to soak in cold water 24 hours before cooking. Finely chop the onion, place in a large pot with 4 generous tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, let it dry and when it reaches a nice golden colour add the beans, drained and plenty of warm water, add salt, bring to a boil and cook for about two hours by covering the pot with a lid. If necessary, add hot water to maintain the proper density, because the beans at the end of the cooking time will be becoming a sort of cream. Meanwhile, toast the bread cubes on a non-stick pan with a little oil. Transfer to bowls or soup bowls, add the diced bread warm, drizzle with a good drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and serve immediately, adding cheese to taste.

Enjoy your meal!

Our advice:

Fava beans are also excellent as side dish, just restrict it so that it has the consistency of a puree, it will be perfect alongside a roast or two good slices of cheese.
