Fava tendrils have tender oval leaves and spiraled stems that attach to a central hollow stem. They have the flavor of fava beans with the grassy sweetness of the plant's foliage. Their unique sweet flavor lends them to be used fresh in salads or lightlysautéed.
Fava tendrils are available in the spring.
Fava tendrils are botanically classified as Vicia faba. Fava beans are a climbing vine with edible leaves, stems, flowers and seeds. The Fava tendrils are the young, thin threadlike stems and leaf shoots of the plant that are used for support as it grows. There are only a certain lineage of legumes that form evolved tendrils: peas, sweet peas and in this case fava beans.
