“I always loved fava beans stewed Portuguese style. But there is always something missing from the recipes I have. I adjusted the spices and added some chourico, a Portuguese sausage similar to linguica or chorizo. I think this version makes a great dish. Make sure you have plenty of crusty bread for dipping in the sauce!” - by Dawne

- Warm the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until golden brown. Stir in the chile paste, tomato sauce, water, parsley, salt, pepper, paprika, and sausage.
- Bring the sausage mixture to a boil over high heat; reduce the heat to low and simmer for 40 minutes. Mix in the fava beans and cook 10 minutes for firm beans, or up to 30 minutes for softer beans.

See moreasted like there was no tomato sauce at all. Also, they tasted like they might've been cooked with smoked ham hocks or something, as they had a distinctly meaty flavor but had very little chourico. I liked your recipe very much; I also liked the version at the feast, just wondering what might've made those so different."
