Most people know about fava beans, but did you know the greens are also edible? Tender and succulent, they are a lovely way to enjoy fava flavour without the laborious process of preparing the beans. Fava Shoots are sweet with a slightly buttery, earthy flavour. In a salad, pesto or hummus they provide a nice burst of spring greens.Wilted or sautéed in good olive oil and a little garlic, salt and lemon. Similar to spinach they can be used in pasta dishes, spanakopita, simply piled on top of avocado toast, or cooked into a quiche.
