Remove the skins from the fava beans and boil in boiling salt water (salt not listed) for 4-5 minutes.
Once they've boiled, remove the thin skin layer, and either strain or mash with a fork. It's a bit difficult, but give it your all.
Add Step 2 to a small pot. Add the sugar and heat. Evaporate the moisture, but cook to your desired stiffness. Add the salt mid-way.
And it's complete.
I made flat bean paste bread. It was really good.
This is also delicious made from edamame.
Story Behind this Recipe
I got a lot of fava beans from a friend, so I made this. It's also delicious made from edamame.
It takes a little bit of work, but all the steps are fairly simple. In Step 2, use the strainer for a smooth feel, while mashing with a fork retains some of the bean feel. Both are delicious. Please adjust the sugar amount as desired. I use 30 g to better make use of the flavor of the beans.
