Ingredients

  • 3

    pounds fresh fava beans shelled (abt 3 cups shelled if small, or 1 3/4 cups if need to peel outer shell)

  • 2

    garlic cloves peeled

  • 1/4

    cup extra-virgin olive oil - (to 1/2)

  • 1/4

    cup grated Pecorino cheese

  • Grinding of black pepper

  • 12

    small bread slices toasted

Directions

In a food processor, grind the fava beans to a pulp with the garlic cloves. Slowly pour enough olive oil through the feed tube with the motor running until a smooth but not too runny paste forms. The fava beans should have the consistency of mashed potatoes. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the cheese. Spread a small amount on the bread slices and drizzle each one with a little extra-virgin olive oil. Extra paste can be stored in a jar in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Serve the toasts immediately. Note: Did you know that fava beans love to grow in cool weather and will germinate in soil as cold as 40 degrees? This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
