    Manami's Note:

    In Tuscany, they puree garlicky fresh fava beans and it is slathered over crispy rounds of crostini and served as an appetizer, Fordhook lima beans have a similar taste and texture! This simple appetizer is wonderful with a glass of sparkling wine like proseco or sauvignon blanc. ;) A scattering of paper thin radish slices provides a juicy crunch and brightens up the plate. You can substitute flat leaf parsley for the mint or a few tablespoons of chopped fresh rosemary. From: The Best of The Best Volume 11.
