DIRECTIONS

  • Shell about three pounds of fava beans.
  • This should leave you with a couple of cups of actual beans.
  • Boil them for about twenty minutes in water and then rapidly cool with cold water.
  • Peel all the larger ones (anything bigger than about 1/2 inch in the longest dimension) by squeezing one end hard and popping the bean out of the skin.
  • Smaller ones can be left whole.
  • Puree in a blender with a head of green garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and sesame tahini.
  • Add salt to taste and serve with bread or crudites.
