Warm Fava Bean Dip with Baked Lasagna Crisps

  • Serves 6
  • Prep in 30 minutes
  • Cook in 15 minutes

For those unfamiliar fava beans are a variety of broad bean so their texture is softer & I tend to find people digest them more easily than other beans, pulses & legumes.

They are still wonderfully rich in plant based protein, fibre, minerals such as potassium, manganese & iron however, as well as boasting a bounty of vitamins including 40% of your daily requirement of folate (B9) per serving.

Key Facts

  • Prep Ahead - Lasts 5 days
  • Family Friendly
  • Freezer Friendly
  • High Protein & Fibre


  • 1 large white or brown onion

  • 1 1/2 cups dried fava beans

  • 1 unwaxed organic lemon

  • 4 brown rice lasagna sheets (or non-gluten free equivalent)

  • Sprinkle of salt + plenty of pepper

  • Extras to serve – 1/2 small red onion or 1 shallot, fresh parsley


  1. 01

    Rinse the fava beans well then bring to a boil in 5 cups of cold water. Skim the scum from the top & simmer for 30 minutes.

  2. 02

    Meanwhile cook your pasta as per packet instructions, drain, rinse & arrange in a single layer on a silicone mat lined tray, season & bake for 20 minutes at 200C turning halfway through. Leave to cool then break into nacho esque pieces & leave to 1 side.

  3. 03

    Drain the beans, add 3/4 to a food processor & spread the rest onto half of the tray you just used. Slice the onion & spread on the other half. Season everything then bake for 10 minutes.

  4. 04

    Add the onion to the food processor with 1 tablespoon lemon juice, blending everything together until stunningly smooth.

  5. 05

    Serve straight away topped with thin slices of lemon rind, finely diced red onion, your baked beans & chopped parsley + those amazing crisps. If needs be you can warm the dip up in a pan (stirring constantly). Personally I have it both ways.

  6. 06

    The crisps will last in an airtight container for 10-14 days & the dip will stay fresh in the fridge for 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
