Also known as broad beans, fava beans are native to North Africa and parts of Asia. If you cook the dried bean, you have to remove the outer shell before eating them (so don’t feel guilty about buying canned!). Fava beans are not as widely available as other beans, so if you can’t find them, feel free to substitute lima beans or edamame.
