Fresh Fava Bean Purée

Fresh Fava Bean Purée

I adore fresh fava beans as they have an extraordinary flavor like no other bean. These early spring beans are small and tender, and are a delicacy in soups, salads, and pastas. Fava beans require a bit of extra effort to shell and peel before cooking, but believe me they are worth it. First they must be stripped from the large green spongy pods, and then each bean needs to be peeled to remove the skin.
