Funahashi Times No.55 「そら豆を食べました!」

Hello there!

The school gave me “fava beans” last Friday. It is called “soramame” in Japanese. Fava beans look just like soybeans, but they are much bigger. They are like giant soybeans. It was my first time to see one. I have never tasted fava beans before, so I was excited to cook and eat them. It was really easy to cook them. I just boiled them for three minutes. I couldn’t really tell the taste clearly, but I enjoyed eating them. They are good for snacks. I think I’ll buy fava beans if I see some in the supermarket.
