Broad beans/Fava Beans/ Foul are Highly Nutritious: loaded in fibre and proteins with many vitamins and minerals.
In ancient Greece and Rome, they were used in voting: white bean used to case a Yes Vote, black bean used to cast a No vote.

Planting fava beans the night on Good Friday, brings good luck in Europe.
In Rome, on May 1st, Roman families traditionally eat green fava beans with Pecorino… I hope this year traditions won’t fail to be repeated .. During the #lentperiod and this #quarentine #lockdown this recipe can be easily prepared and shared with your loved ones  خليك_بالبيت#
