There are a million versions for making favas.  Some have wine, some have tomato, some add chourico.  This is the recipe we use.  Feel free to play around with it and find the best balance for you and your family :)


1/4 cup of Olive Oil-Portuguese if you can
1 large onion-chopped
1 tablespoon or more to taste of pimenta moida
2 cans of fava beans with the liquid-Portuguese brand if you can
1/2 tablespoon of paprika 
Put the oil in a pan and let it heat up.  Add in onions and saute.  Add in Pimenta Moida and paprika.  let it come together for a minute and then add the favas.  You can bundle the parsley and leave it on top or if you'd like you can chop it and stir it in.  
Let it simmer for 45 minutes or more.  The longer they cook, the better they taste!

This is good for a couple people.  Please double or triple if making for a large family.

Enjoy :)
