Like most people, I first stir-fried grains with classic Chinese fried rice. Then I realized I could expand to other types of rice and, heck, even other grains! Flavors can be anything from Indian to Italian to ... whatever you want. But let’s just leave it on Italian for now. Fava beans often come frozen because they taste best that way. Just thaw them first. But don’t worry if you forget—this recipe will just take a little longer to cook.
