How Organic Fava Beans Are Good for You

The WHO advises consuming at least a serving of legumes per day as a part of a healthy diet. It’s not surprising as these foods are rich in protein and dietary fiber while being low in fats. Considering this, fava beans (organic) are great for boosting your general wellbeing.

As a low-calorie nutritious food, these legumes are also a valuable addition to weight management diets. Add cooked Organic Fava Beans to a variety of dishes to make them more filling. You can also include organic bean powder into smoothies, and protein shakes for bodybuilders.

Please note that you can’t give fava beans to dogs as they are toxic to canines.

Dry Fava Beans Nutrition Facts

  • Calcium

The level of folate in these legumes is exceptionally high. A cup of a cooked product provides you with about 40% of the recommended daily amount.

Split Fava Beans: Tips for Cooking and Storage

Organic fava beans look similar to lima beans but taste a bit like green peas. However, their natural flavor is so mild that they can be mixed with any other foods. It is why they are perfect for soups, salads, and dips, which you can season with spices to suit your taste.

Fresh raw organic fava beans are quite tricky to cook. As the plant matures, the shells covering its seeds become mildly toxic. Therefore, you must blanch and shell them by hand to enjoy the benefits of beans.

Dried beans, however, can be cooked like any other legume. They require regular overnight pre-soaking. This product keeps exceptionally well, so you can buy Organic Beans in Bulk and enjoy them for months to come.

Some of the things you can cook with this product are:

  • Nutritious beans soup, seasoned with garlic. It will make a great filling lunch for when you are on a diet.
  • Spicy beans salad with balsamic vinegar and any vegetables you like.
  • Deep-fried beans falafel serves with a mint-yogurt sauce.
  • Hot beans dip, a healthy treat for a party.
  • Nutritious beans hummus for making filling vegan sandwiches.

Make your own organic bean flour and use it to make a variety of gluten-free baked goods. It mixes well with other bean powders.

Recipes

Vegan Fava Bean Dip

Vegan Fava Bean Dip

INGREDIENTS:

Fava Bean Dip:

  • 2 cups shelled fava beans
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about ½ lemon)
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 stalks of scallions, sliced
  • 1/3 cup cilantro leaves
  • ½ teaspoon salt, more to taste

 

Pinwheels:

  • 4 to 5 lavash wraps or tortillas
  • ¼ cup chopped mint
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into matchstick pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Fill a bowl with ice water and set it aside.
2. Bring 4 to 5 cups of water to boil in a large saucepan. Add the fava beans to the boiling water and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Turn off the heat.
3. Using a skimmer or a slotted spoon, transfer the fava beans to the bowl with the ice water. The ice water will stop the fava beans form cooking further. Let the beans sit for about 5 minutes before draining.
4. Remove the outer skin of every bean. You end up with about 1 ¼ cups of beans.
5. Add the beans and the rest of the ingredients for the dip into a food processor. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl if necessary. Taste the dip and add more salt if you like. Transfer the dip to a bowl.
6. To make the pinwheels, spread ¼ to 1/3 cup of the dip over a lavash wrap or tortilla. Make sure that the edge of the wrap facing away from you has a good amount of dip on it. The dip will help you seal the wrap once it’s rolled up.
7. Sprinkle some chopped mint over the wrap. Next, cover with a layer of baby spinach. Line the carrots and pepper along the edge closest to you. Roll up the wrap. Slice into 1 ½-inch slices and transfer pinwheels to a plate. Repeat for the remaining wraps.

Serve immediately.

  2. 1 out of 5 Horrible

    Dark brown, not light in color as shown in photographs and the beans disintegrate to a crumbly mess upon cooking. Flavor of crumbly mess is disgusting. Not a tasty experience as anticipated.
