Like other legumes, fava beans have a high nutritious value. However, they do not appear on our table very frequently.
Shell the fava beans and boil for 7 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water. When cool enough to handle, slip off the tough outer skin of the beans.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the onions for 5 minutes or until golden brown.
Add the dill, beans, rice, and turmeric. Mix well. Season with salt to taste.
Cover the skillet. Reduce the heat and cook for 10 minutes.
