|Spiced pottage of Whole Fava Beans, a luxurious take on a medieval staple food.|
This spiced pottage is a luxurious take on a medieval staple food, harking back to the time when fava beans were an almost daily ingredient in British diets as a year-round source of protein. Those that could afford imported spices would have used them to spice up the dish.
Our recipe was inspired by Ken Albala’s fabulous book Beans and went down very well when we served it to an esteemed visitor from Hokkaido – Ms Hasegawa, an expert on beans of the world.
Parsley and/or rose petals (unsprayed!) to garnish
