Fava beans are a great change of pace from peas or other beans. They taste great in this salad with onion, cucumber and a yogurt dressing.
Ingredients:
1 red onion, thinly sliced
12 oz. fava beans in pods
2/3 cup plain lowfat yogurt
1 teaspoon fresh mint, chopped
1 garlic clove, sliced
1/2 cucumber, peeled and sliced
Directions:
1 To reduce pungency of onions, rinse slices briefly under running cold water and drain well.
2 Shell the favas and discard the pods.
3 In a medium saucepan, bring 2 quarts water to a boil and boil fava beans for 8 minutes or until tender.
4 Drain beans and rinse under cold water. Pierce the favas and squeeze them out of their outer white skins.
5 In a small bowl, combine yogurt, mint, garlic and cucumber. Add beans and onion and toss until well-coated then serve.
6 ENJOY!
