Fava beans in salad...

Bought a packet of fava beans last October for 50 yen. 
Two seedlings came out of it... 
Last year, the crows got the better of me. 
They seem to know exactly when to 'harvest'. 
This time around, no more crows... hence the protective net. 


Fava beans are great in soups...
they almost 'melt' in the mouth, so to say... 
We also tried boiling it lightly to go with a salad...
consisting of homegrown buckwheat sprouts and dill...
on top of carrots and avocado...
and of course, tossed in olive oil as usual.
