My family loves chili but variety on the menu is something that is important to expand their palate. And making fava beans is a good option, as these beans are  a good source of dietary fiber, protein, phosphorus, copper, manganese, and folate.

Including beans in our diet is always a good idea as they can complement our daily intake of fiber and protein. Making the fava beans is fairly easy. Watch the video below for details.

You just need a pressure cooker or a ditch oven. Some like to soak the fava beans before cooking but you can cook directly form the bag, just clean with running water to remove any stone or impurities.

Grew up eating fava beans because mom was used to make them often. At that time did not like the fav bean soup because of the particular smell they have while the cooking process. But when using aromatic condiments like turmeric and cumin both take out that odor and make the soup smoky and flavorful.

Best thing was that the soup was served with homemade croutons, using bolillos cut in chunks and then fried. We would add a handful of those croutons to the soup and made it even better.

I love beans in any way it is cooked! This sure looks like a yummy recipe to try. The addition of turmeric would greatly benefit my husband who suffers from chronic pain in his lower back. Turmeric has anti inflammatory and pain relief properties. Making this soup tonight! Thank you for the recipe!

Turmeric is all the rage right now!! So many health benefits. I don’t think I can jump on board with the whole golden milk thing. I prefer using my turmeric in savory dishes like this one. Thanks for sharing!
