Fava Bean Tendrils

General Information: Grown organically in Ventura County, CA, these delicious little bites are actually the tips of the fava bean plants that have been trimmed.

Favas are a member of the shell bean family and their beans can be used either fresh or frozen. Fava tips are the delicate beginnings of this vegetable and are only available when the plant is developing and shooting out sprigs of new growth.

High in folacin and vitamin C, this is a wonderful way to taste the earthy fava flavor without having to shell beans or discard of tough pods. A hint of iron-like chard flavor and a richness enhanced by olive oil, fleur de sel, spring garlic and a touch of citrus; share these spring treats cooked as one would treat spinach or fresh chard.
