Beans So Green

As anyone who's been recently wandering the cities of France will tell you, the street markets are bursting with fava beans. Not only are these buttery little nuggets of goodness a spring staple in the country, they're also packed with iron, fiber and vitamins A and C. So make like the French and try your hand at a fava bean recipe! Here are a few links to some that made our mouths water. Oh, and don't forget to check out our shopping totes in the French Charmed boutique. They're perfect for those springtime trips to the market!
