Fava Leaves

Fava beans may be a Spring favorite of yours, but did you know the leaves of the fava plant are edible (and tasty!) as well? They're similar to spinach in texture, but their flavor is milder and sweeter, and is reminiscent of fresh sugar snap peas. Use them as you would spinach, and toss them with your favorite salad ingredients for an unusual and tasty lunch.

great post! I'm a huge fan of dandelion greens. So delicious. I hope to see Nettle around soon. I'd love to try that in a pesto.
