Noodles with Fava Beans & Bacon

Noodles with Fava Beans & Bacon

Easy dinner on a busy day

  • Only 3 ingredients!
  • Preparation ~ 20 minutes!
  • Gluten free, lactose free and soy free!
  • Easy and tasty!


  • Rice noodles
  • Biological bacon pieces
  • Fava beans (I use the beans in a glass pot from AH) (in Dutch tuinbonen)


  • You can use the type of rice noodles that don’t have to be boiled. To prepare these noodles – all you need is to boil water and let the noodles soak in it for ~ 10-15 minutes!
  • Of course, you can use any gluten free noodles/pasta.
  • You can use frozen fava beans instead of these in a pot (e.g. from AH).
  •  You do not need fat for frying. The bacon fat is more than enough.
  • I do not add salt or any spices – bacon is usually salty enough and gives a wonderful flavor!
  • Instead of fava beans you could also use Brussels sprout.
