How to Cook Fava Beans (Broad Beans)

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 10 min
Number of servings: N/A

fava beans
2 cups water
2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. Sake/white wine *optional to remove the smell

1. Snap the pod in half and open with your fingers to get the beans out.
2. Once you got the beans out of their shells, make a tiny incision into the opposite side of black line of each beans using the heel of the knife.
3. Bring water to a boil, in a frying pan is okay. Add salt and Sake if needed. Cook for 2 minutes. Drain well and leave to cool. Now the skin should slip off fairly easily by pinching between your thumb and forefinger. 

You can keep in the freezer for about a month.
