In an attempt to eat better (and to have stuff here in case I don't want to go to the store - which is most of the time) we've restarted our Farm Fresh to You delivery. It's produce from an organic farm somewhere around here and is dropped on our doorstep every Thursday.
We stopped getting it before when we were remodeling because I couldn't really cook a ton, so it didn't make sense, but now...we're back on board. Last week we got all kinds of goodies - avacados, oranges, grapefruits, little potatoes, baby carrots, etc - and these beauties - Fava beans. Loved shelling them, loved how they looked - not so much the taste. I threw them in a stir fry and um, yuck.
My goal with this box of produce is to eat better and stretch my cooking creativity - so, if we're going to be getting fava beans, I guess I'd better figure out what to do with them - anyone?? recipes??
