Fava Bean Puree

Fava PureeIngredients

2 cups shelled Fava beans

2-3 garlic cloves, finely minced

2 tablespoons chopped
Italian parsley

1 tablespoon Eureka lemon juice

Salt and pepper to taste

Grated Parmesan or Grana Padana cheese to garnish

½ cup extra virgin olive oil (try it with our Frantoio Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

 

Process

  • In a saucepan combine the fava beans and enough water to just cover the beans
  • Bring to a boil and cook until the beans are tender and the cover splits (about 5-7 minutes)
  • Rinse under cool water so you can handle the beans
  • Slip off the “cover” of the bean
  • Sauté the garlic and parsley for 2-3 minutes in the olive oil
  • Add the beans and the garlic mixture to a food processor and puree
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
  • Stir in the lemon juice and adjust the seasoning to your taste

Spread on grilled crusty bread with extra oil for dressing. Garnish with the grated cheese.
