I had to make a couple of substitutions...used smoked hocks and black beans (turtle beans)instead of the favas. It is raining heavily here today and this is just the right soup to warm the body and soul! Wonderful flavour and lovely textures. Served this with rosemary buttermilk biscuits. Thank you again for sharing! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
