Bean crazy about beans

in the dead of winter there is nothing like a good hearty soup to warm the soul. soups are also great because you can make anything with literally almost nothing. right now one of my favourite recipes is a hearty bean soup made from my all time fav, the fava bean.  fava beans are an old school pea, that has a creamy texture and wonderful flavour. you can easily find these beans at your local grocery store in a can, or fresh in the pod, which means all you have to do is shell them.

aren't they the cutest?
