Sprouted Rye & 12 Grains Fava Bean Bruschetta

Fresh fava beans are a real treat. Shelling them can be a bit of a pain, but you’ll be happy you did, especially if you plan on tossing them with chickpeas, celery and radishes in a lemony vinaigrette. Spooned liberally over our Sprouted Rye & 12 Grains, these savoury toasts make a bright and healthy springtime snack.
