Fabada asturiana, often simply known as fabada, is a rich Spanish bean stew, originally from and most commonly found in the autonomous community of Asturias, but widely available throughout Spain and in Spanish restaurants worldwide.Canned fabada is sold in most supermarkets across the country.
Fabada is a hot and heavy dish and for that reason is most commonly eaten during winter and at the largest meal of the day, lunch. It is usually served as a starter, but may also be the main course. It is typically served with crusty bread, and with Asturian cider or a red wine.
Fabada is made with dried large white beans (fabes de la Granja, soaked overnight before use), shoulder of pork (Lacón Gallego) orbacon (tocino), black pudding (morcilla), chorizo, and saffron (azafrán).
