Healthy, filling, savory and absolutely delicious! This Mediterranean green fava bean dish is super easy to make and will leave you feeling light and satisfied 😊

Have your taste buds changed over the years? They actually have for me. When I was a little girl, my mom used to make green fava beans all the time and I absolutely hated it! I don't know what it was but I couldn't stomach it. However, as I grew older, I've noticed a change in my taste preference. As a little girl I used to love sweet but as a grown woman, now I prepare savory and sour dishes.

This meal now is a definite favorite of mine, give it a try and let me know how you like it
