Split Fava Beans
Split fava beans are nutty-flavoured broad beans which have been dried, skinned and cracked. The peeled split fava beans are an enormous time saver, as you do not need to peel the beans before cooking. Split fava beans are the main ingredient in falafel and Egyptian fried fava bean patties, tamiya.
Fava beans are an ancient food, first eaten in Egypt 5,000 years ago. Split fava beans spread throughout the Middle East and are now used in a wide range of cuisines ranging from Malta’s bigilla dip to Morocco’s bessara dip. Also use the split fava beans in stews, curries and soups.
