As a Portuguese who now lives in Portugal, I recomend adding in some bacon cubes along with Portuguese chouri├žo sliced but not to thin, let it stew with the fava beans, when all cooked try using fresh chopped ciliantro sprinkled over top, its absolutly wonderful.

These are great but to make them even better I add chourico. That's how my mom used to make them.

Reminds me of the favas served at the Portuguese feasts in Rhode Island. Bless you for bringing a little bit of home to my neck of the woods.
