At one of my local Whole Foods, they were sampling Fava brand fava bean hummus and I fell in love with their hearty Roasted Red Pepper fava hummus. I've never had a hummus made with fava beans before. I was easy to convince to try it because I have an affinity for Roasted Pepper flavored hummus.
Silence of the Lambs made fava beans with chianti thrilling, but no need to fear here with this hummus. Fava beans are nutrient-dense, high in fiber, and high in protein. From Livestrong, here are some of the health benefits of fava beans.
For Meatless Monday, I have here a half Roasted Red Pepper fava hummus sandwich with avocado slices, tomato, and arugula with Brianna's Poppy seed dressing on Ezekiel Sprouted Whoe Grain bread. The chips on the side are Enjoy Life's new Margherita Pizza flavored Plentils which are awesome and free of the 8 common allergens.
