Fava bean LEAVES?
ANyone tried eating the leaves of the fava bean plant? We are growing some and it's way too early for the beans, and I read the pod has the most levodopa anyway, although you can eat stem, leaf, pod, and bean. I've also read that since the pod has the most ldopa in it, so you really want fresh, since the dried bean is just, well it's just the bean. I can't find fresh anywhere, but I realize it's very early in the season.
In the meantime, the plants are growing, and I was thinking of making a salad with the leaves. If I took just one leaf off of each plant, I could have a small salad...anyone ever eat the leaves of these plants and if so, get any therapeutic benefit (other than a healthy meal)?
