The Romans made great use of this type of beans which they turned into flour to make bread.
They form part of the diet of inhabitants of Navarra and Álava.
Broad Beans are so consumed and produced in Álava that they have a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO);
This dish is one of the most typical if you want to make a meal based on food from the Spanish region of Álava.
Ingredients (3 people):
5. Salt to taste. If the beans are large you can peel them.
My comments to
the Recipe : It is an easy recipe to prepare, if we don't know exactly how much water to use, do not worry too much, if we have too much water, rather than taking and moving the ham and bacon to the pot, we do the opposite, we put the beans in the pan adding just a little water (not to let them dry).Of course, it would be better if we add just the necessary quantity of water from the beginning ,this way we will not lose the vitamins that remain in the broth.
