Directions

  1. In a large bowl, soak dried fava beans in slightly salted water for 8 hours or overnight.  As the beans soak they will split apart. Split the beans that have not done so by gently pulling them apart.
  2. Rinse, drain, and pat dry.
  3. Heat vegetable or grapeseed oil in a small saucepan until lightly smoking.  Carefully add handfuls of the halved beans to the oil. When lightly browned and bubbles are slow and steady, remove with slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towels to catch the excess oil.
  4. Lightly sprinkle with salt, toss together and repeat the process until all fava beans are fried.  Allow the beans to cool and become crispy!
