Fava Tendrils

Grower: McGrath Family Farms
Seasons/Availability: Spring
Description/Taste: Fava tendrils are the thread, leaflet and blossom of the Fava bean plant. They have the flavor of Fava beans with the grassy sweetness of the plant’s foliage. They are overlooked and underused as a culinary commodity, but their sweet unique flavor and appearance should revere them otherwise.
