Three Ways to Fabulous Faba Beans

Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet can be tricky and it's so easy for our eating habits to slide when we're feeling the pressure from a busy schedule. 

That's exactly why we love to discover simple new ways to introduce an extra hit of healthy goodness into our day, which is why we can't stop eating the Human Bean Co faba beans from our Winter Box (no joke - we eat these ALL the time in the RY office..!).

You could say that faba beans are a food trend right now!

These delicious beans are jam-packed with plant protein and dietary fibre, which means they are the perfect savoury snack that will keep you full of energy.

The secret to Human Bean’s range is a patented, unique air puffing technique which means no roasting or deep frying, creating a low in fat, free of saturated fat snack that is crunchier, lighter, tastier and super healthy.

They are also vegan friendly, gluten free, nut free and dairy free, meaning it’s the ideal snack for people with allergies or intolerances.

Sounds perfect right? Well they are! 

So here's our 3 favourite ways to eat these versatile beans. 

1. As a crunchy addition to a salad

Jazz up this pear, spinach and parmesan salad by adding a hit of crunch with the Lime and Pepper faba beans.
