Sprouted Fava Beans

For years I have been sprouting munng beans and making healthy salads, so why not try sprouting fava beans. Simply take the beans out of their pods, rinse them and create a moist environment in a glass dish with a small amount of water, cover with plastic and let sit on counter for a day or so. A window works best. You will begin to see them sprout. You may boil them in a shallow amount of water to soften them a bit, but I eat them right then.

They are ready for salads. The texture is a nice nutty bite. Mix them into mixed greens, rice or any creative way you can think. Enjoy!
