This week – Fava Bean Miso.

The fava bean is also known as field bean and broad bean. Compared to soybean, this bean is also high in good quality protein and much easier to grow here in Sweden. For this miso I use the standard recipe but with fava beans (shelled), along with barley koji and salt. These beans take much less time to boil too.

I made some fava bean miso 2 years ago. I sampled it recently and found it very good – worth making more of.
