For the fava croquettes:

1 onion dry

1 carrot

1 clove of garlic

150g fava

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

500g water

2 laurel leaves

1 teaspoon cumin

1 cube of vegetable stock

50g spring onion

Zest of one lemon

Juice of one lemon

70g all-purpose flour

30g breadcrumbs

Sunflower oil for frying



For the sauce:

3 tablespoons strained yogurt

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

Zest of half a lemon

Juice of half a lemon




In a bowl, add hot water and the fava, stir it for 2-3 minutes and strain.

In a saucepan, add 3 tablespoons olive oil and add the onion, the carrot and the garlic, after cutting them into large pieces.

As soon as they are sizzled, add the fava. Continue sautéing for 2 minutes and add the water, the bay leaves, the pepper, the cumin and vegetable broth and boil for 15 to 20 minutes (if necessary, add a small amount of water).

Once ready, put it to a blender and add salt, zest and lemon juice.

Mix until they get a smooth texture. Put the mixture in a bowl and add the spring onion, flour and breadcrumbs and mix lightly.

Shape the croquettes into balls, about 30g each and fry over medium to high heat, without stirring, for 2 minutes until golden coloured.

For the sauce, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Serve with some spring onion.
