Revisiting an Oldie: Fava Bean Cilantro Rice

** This is part of my vegan Soup to Nuts fava bean recipe series. For a list of different recipes, check out this post about fava beans! **

This is one of the first posts I made, but a real treasure. I usually make this rice with frozen beans, but this season the fresh beans give it a much better uumph. Coriander [aka cilantro] rice with fava [broad] beans is one of my absolute favorite dishes when you need to make a meatless dish, with these beans as proteins. 

To keep the beans green, with a bit of a crunch, rather then the mushy texture I am used to, you need to add in the beans halfway through cooking the rice. Do not mix it in until the rice is cooked a not to ruin the steaming process.

Do you like your rice spiced with additions or you prefer your rice plain
