Sprouting Fava Beans

After sprouting the fava beans ….do you eat just the “tail” or the whole bean and tail?

Reply: We eat the whole steamed sprouted bean (first peel, then rinse well, then place in steamer basket /cover with a lid and start timing with the steam starts coming out of lid.  Depending on how you find you like them…test at 6 min (more l-dopa is lost the longer they cook/) not able to 7 min/ or up to 8 min
