    Fabada Asturiana or simply Fabada is a traditional bean stew from Asturias.
    The dish is made from large butter beans called fabes and a selection of smoked Asturian meats like chorizo, morcilla and pancetta. Preparing an authentic fabada asturiana is easy, my recipe shows you how to prepare it and cook it in five easy steps. The secret to the best fabada asturiana is to ‘scare’ the fabes during cooking by pouring cold water. Thee cold water reduces the temperature of the liquid, slowing the hydration of the beans and stopping the starch from expanding inside the fabes and breaking the outer skin.
