Fava Bean Dip aka Fake Guacamole
(recipe, Mary Altman)
Fava beans have a creamy texture, and when pureed with typical guacamole ingredients, it's a wonderful local, seasonal, nutrient rich substitute for guacamole.
- Fava beans
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- Garlic, 2 cloves, diced
- Lime juice
- 2 Tbsp. plain goat cheese
- Blanche fava beans. Shell beans from the large pod. Peel off the second layer of skin, revealing a tiny, bright green bean.
- In a food processor, combine beans, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, lime juice and goat cheese. Add more water if needed to make it creamy.
- Serve as a dip, or as filling between grilled corn tortillas.
