Sopa De Habas (Fava Bean Soup)
60 mins (prep 10, cooking 50)
10 ingredients
4 servings
This is a Mexican soup made with Fava Beans, saffron, and cumin. The recipe calls for dry fava beans, but you can also use frozen, which will cut down on cooking time and affect the color of the soup. I do not recommend canned (broad beans) because they are cooked with the skins and texturally you'll want to remove them, but the beans are now squishy and it is not fun.
