  • 125 g (~ 1/2 cup) dried split fava beans
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 2 tbsp finely grated vegetarian parmesan-style cheese


  • Boil the dried split fava beans in plenty of water for around 25-30 minutes, until they are soft, but still holding their shape. Drain away the water.
  • Heat the oven to 150°C (Gas Mark 2 / 300°F).
  • Add the olive oil to the pan of beans, and toss to coat the fava beans. Spread them out on a baking tray, in a single layer if possible, and sprinkle with salt, pepper and dried herbs.
  • Place in the oven and roast for around 20 minutes, stirring halfway. The beans should be beginning to crisp up.
  • Sprinkle the parmesan over the beans, and mix well. Spread the beans out again, and roast for a further 15 minutes, until crispy and golden brown.
  • Eat warm, or leave to cool, and store in an airtight container.
