FAVA BEAN RECIPES

Ingredients

1 bag favas

2 Tbsp oil

4 cloves garlic

2-3 Tbsp lemon juice

1-2 onion greens, chopped

Salt & pepper to taste

Directions

Remove favas from pods.  You can remove the outer skin of the individual beans, but I always leave it on.  It is easier to remove the outer skin after they have been boiled.

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil.  Cook the favas for 2-3 minutes, then either rinse with cold water or dunk in an ice water bath.  

Heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for about 1-2 minutes.  Add the beans and cook for an additional five minutes.

Remove from the heat, add lemon juice, top with onion greens and season with salt and pepper as desired.

Salt & pepper to taste

Directions

Remove favas from pods.  You can remove the outer skin of the individual beans, but I always leave it on.

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil.  Cook the favas for 2-3 minutes, then either rinse with cold water or dunk in an ice water bath.  Set beans aside.
