Recipe

Spanish habas con jamòn is a popular snack dish of soft beans and chewy, salty cured ham

Yield: Serves
Prep time: 10 Mins
Cooking time: 30 Mins

Ingredients

  • 2 lb 2oz (900g) fresh fava beans, removed from their pods
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 7 oz (200g) Serrano ham or prosciutto, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable stock

Directions

1. In a saucepan of lightly salted, boiling water, cook the beans until the skins loosen, about 2 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Slip off the skins.

2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, about 4 minutes, or until translucent. Add the ham and garlic, increase the heat to medium-high, and cook for about 2 minutes more, or until the ham begins to brown.

3. Add the beans and the wine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the wine is almost completely reduced, about 8 minutes. Stir in the stock and simmer over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, until the stock is reduced by half. Serve hot.

Notes

Prepare ahead:

The dish can be prepared up to 2 days in advance. The flavors improve with reheating.
