Estofat de Quaresma (Catalan Vegetable Stew)
Dried fava, butter, or lima beans are preferable in this recipe, so that they can be cooked the full 45 minutes and add their flavor more fully to the pot. If using canned beans, strain their liquid into the pot and add the beans 5 minutes before the cooking is finished. Feel free to use fresh peas. For frozen beans or peas, add them 10 minutes before cooking is finished. Do not use canned peas.
