Product Information

PRODUCT INFO

Petite Fava Leaf™ is a crisp leafy green with tiny black specks, and a full fava bean flavor (similar to pea vines, but less sweet).  Though fresh fava beans have a relatively short season each year, fava greens are available year round.  They are delicious either raw or very lightly cooked, allowing them to be used in a wide variety of dishes.  They’re particularly well suited to Italian, Chinese & Thai dishes.

These fava leaves are considered a “petitegreen.”  This means that they are somewhat older than a microgreen, making them larger and more impressive while offering fairly similar flavor and tenderness to a true microgreen.

STORAGE

Storage:

Store Petite Fava Leaf™ in your refrigerator in its plastic clamshell.

Shelf Life:

Petitegreens will stay fresh for 10-20 days depending on the variety.

RECIPES & TIPS

Fava leaf petitegreens can be served raw, lightly sautéed, or added to stir fried dishes in the last minute of cooking.

Served raw they can be used as a garnish or tossed with other greens as part of a salad.

Cooked fava leaves can be used in Italian, Chinese, and Thai dishes. Their pronounced fava bean flavor pairs well with ingredients like duck meat, fish, onions, bacon, rabbit meat, lentils and pasta.
