I didn't "figure it out" but I just found out that fava beans (of "... with fava beans and a nice Chianti" fame) are the same thing as broad beans. I don't like broad beans much, so that's put me off the idea.

This was thanks to the article below, from which I also learned that falafel is often made with broad beans mixed in with, or even instead of, the chickpeas:

I do like falafel, so maybe broad beans aren't that bad after all. Now to source some decent liver from somewhere...
