Yields4 ServingsPrep Time25 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time45 mins

Like other legumes, fava beans have a high nutritious value. However, they do not appear on our table very frequently.

 1 cup fresh fava beans
 3 tbsp Olive oil
 1 medium onion, finely chopped
 1 cup fresh dill, chopped
 2 cups Basmati rice, cooked
 1 tsp turmeric

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.


Serve hot.
