Fava beans with garlic, onions and potato
garlic bulb (head) and if fresh the green part that is attached
fresh green onions with greens
one small red potato chopped
salt and pepper
Take beans out of the pod. Parboil for 3 minutes and cool quickly in ice water. Peel off the outer shell of the bean. Saute the red potato till brown (if you have this chopped really small it takes only 4 minutes or so). Add the chopped garlic head and green part, and the onions. Saute till these start getting tender--3 minutes or more depending on the heat. Add the fava beans and cook about 3-4 minutes. Serve with salt and pepper.
