    I’ve made this salad twice already this season, love the flavor combination.
    One of my favorite ways to make favas is just a simple sauté with panchetta, garlic and shallots

    Thank you so much for this recipe. Made this salad twice already from our harvest of fava beans, so delicious !

    Dear bean lover and Elise,
    It is not an allergy or like an allergy. It’s a hereditary condition, which only males are afflicted. Where eating Fava Beans causes “hemolytic anemia” and yes it can be deadly. Google it.

    Ok, here is my favorite fava(broad) bean recipe. Incredibly simple. the cheese and beans go so well together.

    2 kg. fava beans
    Olive oil
    Pecorino cheese
    Juice of one lemon

    Boil the beans in a big pot of salted water for 5-7 min. Cool under cold water. Remove beans from pods and then remove tough outer shell from each individual bean. Salt and pepper beans. Shave some pecorino cheese with a potato peeler on top of beans. Sprinkle some extra virgin olive oil and squeeze a lemon.

    Love the simplicity of this approach. Thanks for sharing! ~Elise

    Gosh, this recipe was so good! I have never been able to find fava beans in my little area of SW Colorado, so I ordered 1/2 case from I am so glad I have more for future salads.
