I bought a can of fava beans at the store, I have no idea what to do with them. I've eaten them before fresh but never canned. It was an impulse buy but now i need to figure out something tasty: Anyone

If you're Hannibal Lecter, you eat them with liver and a nice Chianti.

If not, this recipe for Greek-style beans looks tasty, and easy!

didn't look at that link so I might be repeating, but what about simply mashing them into a dip? add some lemon juice and garlic?

dh warms them on the stove, mashes hardboiled egg, eats it with bread. Cumin and either clarified butter or pure sesame oil for toppers. sometimes chopped tomato and onion. (an African thing I guess I never ate fava beans before I married him)

You can fry them and eat with salt. Yum. Or I suppose roasting them in the oven would be more nutritious with the same yum.

I've made some killer falafel's from fava beans. Mash 'em and mix them with chopped onion and garlic, parsley, flour, a little cumin, and a pinch cayenne. Roll them into balls or patties and fry 'em up.
