El Maragato Alubia Fabada Gigante

Legumes from León

These faba­da beans, or fabes, from El Mara­ga­to are tak­en from León, Spain, and are large and per­fect for cooking.


These El Mara­ga­to Faba­da Beans hail from León in Spain, which has the most fer­tile lands, per­fect for the plant­i­ng and prop­a­gat­ing of legumes.

The faba¬≠da beans (some¬≠times called fabes), are white beans that are large in size and kid¬≠ney-shaped. They have a short and broad appear¬≠ance, with a slight¬≠ly flat¬≠tened grain.

When cooked, they become extra but­tery and tender.


The most com¬≠mon way to pre¬≠pare fabes is, of course, the faba¬≠da. It‚Äôs a type of pork and bean stew orig¬≠i¬≠nat¬≠ing from the Prin¬≠ci¬≠pal¬≠i¬≠ty of Asturias, but is wide¬≠ly avail¬≠able and con¬≠sumed through¬≠out the entire¬≠ty of Spain.

A dish sim¬≠i¬≠lar to the faba¬≠da is the French cas¬≠soulet, which is pre¬≠pared in much the same way with the same ingre¬≠di¬≠ents, except for the inclu¬≠sion of a cup of red wine. Both dish¬≠es are deli¬≠cious and hearty, and per¬≠fect for cold nights.


El Mara¬≠ga¬≠to is a com¬≠pa¬≠ny found between Astor¬≠ga and Cas¬≠tril¬≠lo de los Polvazares in the region of La Mara¬≠gater√≠a. They‚Äôve select¬≠ed and pack¬≠aged the tasti¬≠est and most ten¬≠der legumes from Le√≥n for more than 25 years.

La Mara¬≠gater√≠a refers to the group of towns that have his¬≠to¬≠ry dat¬≠ing back to ancient times‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČas far back as the Roman era, of con¬≠tribut¬≠ing great¬≠ly to the devel¬≠op¬≠ment and trade of Spain.
