Fava bean are, oh so tasty, fresh from the garden. Here’s a simple Fava Bean Puree Crostini recipe we like to do when these beans are in season. Enjoy with a glass of our McEvoy Ranch Saimuun Vermentino.
Fava Bean Puree Crostini
3 cups fava beans, shelled
1/4 C. McEvoy Ranch extra virgin olive oil, plus oil to finish
Sea Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tsp. fresh herbs (tarragon, parsley and rosemary all work well)
4 oz. Pecorino Romano
1 sweet baguette, sliced and toasted
Blanch fava beans, drain and set aside to cool; once cool, pop out of shell.
Pulse herbs in a food processor until finely chopped. Add favas, lemon juice and about 1/4 cup olive oil; pulse again until well blended. Season puree to taste with salt and pepper.
Generously spread puree onto baguette pieces and top shaved pecorino. Drizzle with McEvoy Ranch extra virgin olive oil to finish and serve.
