Fava Bean Puree with Chicory
This simple fava bean puree paired with cooked chicory, a bitter green in the same family as escarole, is seasoned solely with olive oil and salt--an easy appetizer or side dish for any Italian-theme meal. If you have a special olive oil in your pantry, this is the time to use it.
Look for “peeled” or “skinless” dried fava beans near other dried beans in the international aisle at well-stocked supermarkets, in natural-foods stores or online from bobsredmill.com.
