When I lived in Chennai, the produce markets had these large fava-sized/shaped beans that were bright purple and white. They were fresh. Sometimes they came in large similarly colored pods, other times there were shelled. They were edible fresh, though we steamed them for sanitation. They were some of the best beans I've ever had, and reminded me more of fresh pea pods than beans, despite their large size. Any clue what they were?

I recall eating a meal in Italy that I THINK was just rice, canned tuna, and white beans drizzled in olive oil. Is this a real "dish"? I've put those four ingredients together and it doesn't taste the same. And it's a really monochromatic meal. Anyone have any thoughts on the "real" dish, or if not, how to spice up the one I remember? It was in Parma.
