fabadaThe “fabada” is a typical dish of Asturias (an autonomous community of north-western Spain) made from beans (in Asturian: fabes) and various types of meat such as sausage, ham, lard or bacon.
Its use dates back to the sixteenth century. The type of bean that is used in Spain is called “de la Granja” (Farm), and is a very buttery variety, the most appropriate for this dish.
