Also known as Broad Bean or Horse Beans, FAVA BEANS are high in fiber, protein and iron. Fava beans are also a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium. Quite sophisticated for a bean per se and considered a culinary luxury by its true fans and chefs, five to seven fava beans are encased in a large green pod that is definitely inedible which is why it must be peeled away and discarded.
