Ingredients

  • 4 cups peeled dry fava beans
  • 3 quarts (12 cups) water
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 8 large cloves garlic

Preparation

Preparation

1 Bring the beans, water, oil, salt and garlic to boil in a wide bottom pot. Reduce the flame to medium and cook, covered, for 2 hours.
2 Whisk the paprika, cayenne, cumin, lemon juice and a little water in a bowl to make sure you have no spice lumps, and throw the mixture in the pot. Cook 15 more minutes.
3 You will find that the beans have almost completely dissolved all by themselves, but just in case you want a more elegant presentation, cream the soup with an immersion blender. Adjust the texture and seasonings. Makes a dozen ample servings.
