Forgive me for any etiquette faux pax (and bad French) - I have never been on a chat room before! Had wonderful fava bean dish recently on honeymoon in Florence. It was actually a Kebab place called Turkuaz. The dish was fava beans (which looked brown, not green) and squished tomatoes, with maybe some onions and yummy spices. We had it with simply cous cous (like beans and rice for dinner) and could not stop eating it. I bought dried organic fava beans at the Co-op this week and have been looking for recipes that seem similar, but all I can find are green, fresh fava bean salads and then stews and roasted chicken and nothing that approximates. help? Needless to say, I am not much of a cook, but I am fearless and like to learn and try.
