So with Fava beans being so good for you.. I went in search of more recipes.
Josh and The Food Section is always a great resource and Grilled Fava Beans are a a great idea, perfect timing for the season. The recipe is from another Judy….. at Zuni Cafe in San Francisco. a Temple to food.
I am also going to try making the Pugliese recipes using Fava Beans…Capriata
they cook the dried beans with or without potatoes and then puree them into a soup serving with boiled and then sauteed chicory, sweet and bitter together, serve topped with extra virgin olive oil and a loaf of fabulous bread.
Puglia is called the Bread Basket of Italy, it produces tons of wheat and incredible vegetables,
But I really liked the Garbanzo bean soup topped with hand made tagliatelle in the soup, another twist on pasta and fagioli, but then garnishing it with the same pasta fried.
Pure Genius! I am going to try the same thing with the fava puree I have left over, add liquid and make it a soup.
that’s on the menu later today!
