[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.9.4″ text_font_size=”16px” text_line_height=”2em” header_3_font=”DM Serif Display||||||||” header_3_font_size=”20px” header_3_line_height=”1.4em” hover_enabled=”0″ text_font_size_tablet=”” text_font_size_phone=”14px” text_font_size_last_edited=”on|phone” locked=”off” sticky_enabled=”0″]

Step 1

Place the dried split fava beans in a bowl and cover with several inches of cold water. Leave to soak at least 8 hours or overnight. Drain the soaked beans and remove skins, if any. Place the beans in a pot and add the water, olive oil, garlic, and spices.

Step 2

Bring the beans to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the beans are tender, about an hour. Drain the beans in a strainer set over a bowl. Reserve the cooking liquids.

Step 3

Puree the beans until smooth with an immersion blender, blender, or food processor, using as much reserved broth as needed to reach your desired consistency. Stir in the lemon juice. Taste and adjust salt, keeping in mind that condiments will add flavor at the table.

Step 4

At serving time, reheat the puree gently over medium-low heat. Serve the bessara as a dip or soup with olive oil, cumin, salt, and cayenne or harissa on the side as condiments.
