Santorini Fava (PDO) (14.1 oz)
Fava can be cooked in much the same way as lentils. Combine one cup fava with 1.5 cups water, bring to a boil, and simmer until the fava reaches the desired texture. It's typically cooked to a "mashed potato" consistency, but you can adjust the texture by varying the amount of cooking time and water. Fava makes a great side dish or even a main course when topped with Greek capers, onion, and a healthy drizzle of Greek olive oil.

Easy to cook. Tasty and creamy. I am a convert! Thank you.
Fava (according to Diane's recipe) was fabulous!
