I would love to try it, but I think my husband might think that I have gone off the deep end. LOL

These really are wonderful and well worth the extra effort to prepare. They are quite easy to grow and do well here in my Southwest desert climate.

Fava beans are my 2nd most Fav-O-Rite legume to plant for Nitrogen. Not only do they make a great Hummus to eat but they are really cool looking plants and can really fill in an area quite quickly here in the desert winter and spring!
By the way... Tepary beans are my #1 :)

I think butter beans are similar to gigantes but aren't favas. And limas, especially big ones, taste paste-y to me. Try the recipe with either of those 2 though, and let me know how they work, David.

I'm not sure whether I've eaten Fava beans or not. They look very similiar to what we call Butter Beans which is similiar to a big lima bean. They also have very similiar tastes. I love all beans and haven't found one yet that I didn't like.

Terrific blog! I have always been hesitant about using fava beans but love the idea of combining them with fresh goat cheese so will be making your Fava Bean Dip recipe today. Thanks!
