Favas with coriander are popular in almost every region of Portugal and rightly so, since the association is terrifically fragrant. If you are eating this as a dish on its own, serve a simple cos lettuce salad alongside - it is the traditional and apt accompaniment. Frozen baby broad beans are fine when fresh are out of season and peas work well, too. The lard is important to the flavour. If you have an earthenware pot that can be used on a flame, now is the time to use it - the results are inexplicably better.
