No livers to be found anywhere near these fava beans. Hannibal Lector’s iconic line in the movie Hannibal was definitely not want I was thinking when cooking up this batch of .

As an alternative to the usual zucchini and sweet potato style patties, I thought I would utilise an ingredient that is often overlooked even though it packs a tasty punch. I’ve eaten fava beans in salads, pasta, in soup, as a dip or as an accompanying sauce with fish or chicken.

However, in this recipe the Fava Bean is the star ingredient, with its fresh and sweet tones bursting through each bite.

The fava bean is the star ingredient in these patties.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 5-6 Patties

250g Fresh or Frozen Shelled Fava Beans (or Broad Beans)
2 Medium Sized Potatoes
1 Tablespoon Almond Meal
1 Tablespoon Quinoa Flour
1 Tablespoon Fresh Mint
1 Teaspoon Lemon Zest
Salt and Black Pepper to taste
Fava Bean Dip
Chickpea Pate
Fresh Mint Leaves and Cooked Prawns to Garnish (Optional)

  • Peel and dice the potatoes and place them into boiling water to cook for approximately 10 minutes. Once cooked rinse and drain the potatoes and set aside to cool.

  • While the potatoes are cooking, shell the fava beans. I used frozen fava beans in this recipe, however you will still need to remove the opaque soft shell from the beans.

  • Use either fresh or frozen fava beans.

  • Combine the cooked potatoes, shelled fava beans, almond meal, Quinoa flour, fresh mint, lemon zest, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

  • Combine all the ingredients these patties are extremely quick and easy to make.

  • Using a stick blender, pulse the ingredients for a few seconds until the ingredients are mashed (don’t over do the pulsing as you don’t want to create a smooth puree). If you don’t own a stick blender, use a fork instead.

  • Pulse the ingredients with a stick blender to make a rustic looking mash.

  • Shape the fava and potato mash into small patties. Depending on the size of the patties you make, you should get about 5-6 patties from this mixture.

  • Heat a non-stick frying pan and lightly grease the pan with a spray of cooking oil.

  • Cook the patties for approximately 4-5 minutes on each side.

  • Cook the for approximately 45 minutes on each side.

  • Arrange the patties on a serving plate.

  • Dollop a tablespoon of Chickpea Pate onto each Fava Bean Pattie, followed by a dollop of Fava Bean Dip .

  • Garnish with a cooked prawn and some fresh mint leaves. (Optional)

  • These can also be eaten warm or cold and therefore make a great meal to pack for a picnic.

  • Arrange the on a serving platter. Dollop some fava bean dip and chickpea pate on top of the patties and garnish with some mint and prawns.
