Meatless Monday: Green Hummus
It's been some time since I wrote about a Meatless Monday, and with the garden producing so much, I thought I'd get back to it. We've grown fava beans for the first time this year. LOVE them! Not only do they fix nitrogen in the soil, but they produce this wonderfully plump and flavorful bean.
The DH made up a recipe for this "green hummus": fava beans (shelled and raw, skins included), parsley, lemon sorrel, lemon juice, tahini, dash of salt. The parsley and lemon sorrel are also from the garden. The raw fava beans are quite starchy and the other ingredients help balance that out. It was very delicious!
Do you like fava beans? How do you make them? You may also know them as horse beans or broad beans.
