Number of Servings: 3


    100 g fava beans, dried
    450 g ground turkey
    1/2 onion
    1 clove garlic
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
    1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes
    1 tbsp chili powder
    water, as necessary.


Pre soak the fava beans.

Simmer the fava beans for an hour or two.

Cook the onions and garlic in the oil, and then add the turkey. When the turkey browns, drain off a bit of the excess oil, if you find you have too much.

Drain the fava beans. Add the turkey mixture to the pot, and add the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Stir, and let simmer. I added 1/2 cup of water and 1 tbsp chili powder at this point, you may need more or less water depending on how much simmering you plan on doing.

Makes 3 gigantic servings!!
