I took a cooking class with Tori Ritchie and this is one of her recipes. It is fantastic!! Instead of ricotta salata you can use crumbled feta cheese or a young pecorino. You will not be disappointed!

  1. Shell the fava beans and drop them in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain, then pop the inner bean out of its skin.

  3. Brush both sides of the bread slices with oil and broil, turning once, until they are golden.
