How to Prepare Fresh Fava Beans 如何處理新鮮蠶豆

Some of you may not be very familiar with fava beans. They're also called broad beans, and are a great addition for vegetarians and vegans. They're high in protein, fiber, isoflavonoids, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and contain a good amount of folates, vitamin B6 and thiamin also. You can buy them in dried form, but why miss out on the opportunity to have them fresh when their season comes? They look, taste and feel totally different when they're fresh.  I know it's quite a process to go through, and it takes a lot of bean pods to make enough beans, but believe me, you'll be happy you did!


Parc de Sceaux 蘇鎮公園

In Paris, it's hard to avoid crowds almost anywhere. You can go to the Bois de Vincennes, which is a large park to the east of Paris, and still, you'll find people everywhere. If you don't like crowds, but enjoy walking around beautiful parks, like me, then the Parc de Sceaux is the perfect place for you. It's, in my opinion, one of the loveliest park that I've been to. Located just about 10km away from central Paris (you can get there by taking the RER B line), you can easily find yourself a quiet grassy spot to have an afternoon picnic or take a romantic walk!
