DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the fava beans for about 5 minutes. Then put in cold water to cool.
  • Once cool, peel the fava beans, starting with the dark spot of a hinge at the end (or the butt, as Lindsey would have it -- ).
  • Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, add the olive oil and let the oil warm for about a minute.
  • Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
  • Add the onion, cover, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the onion becomes transparent,.
  • Add the bay leaf, water, and carrot. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Add the fava beans and cook another 5 minutes.
  • Remove the bay leaf & transfer all ingredients to a food processor, add salt & pepper to taste, and puree until soup is smooth and thick. (you may have to do it in batches if you've got a small one like me).
  • Enjoy with some nice whole grain toast, or whatever suits you!
