I like to use Betta Foods textured vegetable protein in my cooking, as the texture and flavor is excellent. If you cannot find this product, use your favorite soya protein, or substitute mushrooms for the TVP. I leave the outer skin on the fava beans for this recipe. It is mildly chewy but adds to the flavor of the stew.
Here is a vegan salad that is loaded with complete protein. It is a light dish that is perfect for a hot summer day. Be sure to use mild onions in this dish. If they are too sharp, soak them in water for several hours, before draining and patting dry.
These lovely fava beans grill up nicely, whether on a fire pit, charcoal barbecue, or a grill pan on your stove. They are tender and full of flavor.
Makes twelve 2-inch patties.
