/

Britain's original bean, the fava bean is delicious, nutritious and good for the soil. Our Organic Whole Fava Beans are perfect for spicy Egyptian ful medames, truly British baked beans, stews, curries, salads and more.

Our current crop of whole fava beans are the unusually small, round and wonderfully tender Maris Bead variety, bred over 50 years ago at the Plant Breeding Institute on Maris Lane near Cambridge. Whether they're cooked from dry or used canned, we think these are our best ever whole fava.

Also available as part of our Big Bundle of British Pulses. Or try our canned Whole Fava Beans in Water, cooked and ready to use.

Complete Product Details

    • Whole dried fava beans retain their skin and require soaking before use, but hold their shape even after prolonged cooking.

      Cooking instructions

      Soak overnight, drain and rinse. Place in a pan with plenty of water, bring to boil, cover and simmer for 45-60 minutes until tender. Refreshing the water during cooking will remove more of the natural tannins from the bean skins and give a more subtle flavour.

      Notes on Cooking Dried Pulses

      Cooking times for dried pulses will be longer at higher altitudes and when cooking with hard water or older pulses.

      Adding bicarbonate of soda during soaking and/or cooking will soften the pulses and reduce the cooking time.

      Cooked pulses can be used immediately or frozen for later use.
