    VegSocialWorker's Note:

    This is an untried recipe from Robin Robertson's Vegan Planet. I probably won't be trying it until fava beans are in season again but it sounds so good that I thought I'd post it in case anyone else wants to try it with dried, frozen or canned fava beans. The recipe notes that if favas are unavailable, you can substitute butter or lima beans. Serve over couscous or rice.

      When I read the recipe I had to try it. This is unusual for me since I often judge recipes by the reviews. The flavors of the veggies and the fruit is fine. I did increase the amout of cinnamon and cumin each by 1 t., which then would be 2t. of each. Its a great recipe , colorful and deliciously tasty. Thanks social worker for posting, I'm sure you'll like it too.
      PS I used dry fava beans which I soaked for 24 hours.

      I love this recipe (and probably every recipe in Vegan Planet) and make it often. I don't use favas, I use chickpeas. The only other change I make is to add the dried fruit to to couscous not the stew. I also serve it with Sriracha sauce (sp? it's the one with the rooster on the bottle); it reminds me of harissa sauce that is usually served with couscous.
