Fava Feast

It is spring and tons of plants going in the ground. That means it’s time to get rid of the winter cover crops. For us that means FAVAS!

I pulled all the plants from one of our beds and chopped up the root to let it nitrify the soil. The stalks got piled onto the patio table to be defoliated and stripped of edible size beans.

I came away with roughly 4lbs of beans and 1lb of braising greens. A few years ago I made an incredible fava and citrus salad. This time, who knows.

I’m open to suggestions!
