Fava Frenzy!

For some weeks now I have been obsessed with the idea of tackling fava beans.  (Not literally of course, I’m not having some sort of hallucination.)  What I mean is, I have never cooked fresh fava beans myself and I feel this represents a bit of a foodie deficiency on my part (one cup of these guys is only 2 points).  These crazy looking fat pods show up in the specialty markets this time of year and I stare at them and think…huh, wonder what the heck you do with those?  I mean, do you treat them like limas/butter beans?  Do you treat them like English Peas?  Really, what’s their deal?  Other than being appropriate with liver and a good chianti, I got nothing. 

Apparently, the foodblog gods have been listening because I have run across a few lovely recipes that I am going to try this week.  If you are feeling equally ambitious and would like to try a new veg, here they are!
