Galician White Faba Beans, 400g

Read all reviews



These Fabas de Lourenza or Galician medium white beans are grown by Teresa Recalde in the green highlands of Lugo. These new season beans were harvested in October 2020 and their freshness means they only need simple cooking. Faba are truly delicious on their own, just lightly dress with Brindisa Arbequina Olive Oil. Also divine in a broth with sautéed cavalo nero.

Cooking your beans

Soak the beans until they are plump and smooth. Usually, 12 hours is enough. Sometimes you may need a few hours more, particularly if the beans are a bit older. In warm weather refrigerate the soaking beans.

When the beans are soaked, rinse and put in a heavy cook pot and cover well with fresh water. Bring the beans to a boil, reduce heat to very low and cover. Simmer gently until tender - usually for 55-70 minutes. NB Should you find the beans are simmering too hard, you can “shock” them (slow things down) with the addition of a little cold water.

Recipe Tips

Cook with roasted butternut squash to create a ragu
