Fava Parada Preparation
Soak the peeled broad beans the night before, drain on the day.
Peel and dice the potatoes, garlic, onion, turnip and carrots, and cut the cabbage julienne.
Place the beans, turnip, carrots, trotter, chops and belly pork in a pan with cold water and cook slowly on a low heat.
When the meat is cooked remove and cut into strips.
Add the botifarrón, sobrasada, onion, tomato, potatoes, cabbage and strips of meat to the pot. Leave to simmer until the potatoes are cooked.
In another pot cook the noodles in some stock and add them to the pot when al dente. Check the salt and add some mint. Serve.
If you find the dish to be too filling, you can substitute the pork for a quarter of a hen, or leave the meat out completely, it will be just as tasty.
