Split Fava Beans - end of line bargain

Hodmedod's British Pulses & Grains

All our retail packs of split fava beans are now organic but we've a few packs of non-organic beans left, available at half-price while stocks last.

All remaining non-organic split fava beans are best before end August 2020 or later.

Split Fava Beans are tasty, versatile and easy to cook - they don’t even need soaking.

Use our Split Fava Beans to make dal, falafel or hummus - or add a handful or more to soups, stews or curries. The beans get softer and softer the longer they're cooked.

Also available as part of our Big Vegan Box and Classic Pulses Selection.

Complete Product Details

    • Split fava beans don't need soaking and cook down to a very soft consistency.

      Cooking instructions

      To cook simply cover the beans with water or stock, boil for 10 minutes then simmer, braise or roast for 20-30 minutes more. Pre-soaking speeds up cooking but isn't essential. The beans will get softer and softer as they cook.

      Notes on Cooking Dried Pulses

      Cooking times for dried pulses will be longer at higher altitudes and when cooking with hard water or older pulses.

      Adding bicarbonate of soda during soaking and/or cooking will soften the pulses and reduce the cooking time.

      Cooked pulses can be used immediately or frozen for later use.
