Spelt Salad with Fava Beans

    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This was unexpectedly good, especially for someone who doesn't like vinegar. My husband appreciated the meaty texture imparted by the fava beans, and at only 190 calories per cup, this makes for quite a hearty vegetarian supper! I didn't have parsley so I substituted cilantro and it turned out fine. Shelling the fava beans is rather time-consuming but these are quickly gaining a place next to edamame as my favorite legume. I would definitely make this for a pot-luck or family get-together.
