Preparing hummus from fresh, seasonal fava beans gives you a glorious jade green color and a spicy, bright taste. Use a good quality extra virgin olive oil since it really is an important part of the flavor profile.


Radish Salad

Additional garnish


Shuck fava beans from the pods. Cook in boiling, salted water for 5 to 6 minutes, until the inside of the bean is tender. Allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Pop the soft inner flesh from beans into a small bowl.

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade, combine fava beans, garbanzo beans, garlic, tahini, salt and lemon juice. Pulse a few times. Add olive oil and puree to a smooth paste. (If it is a little dry, add more olive oil.) Adjust seasoning to your taste with more salt or lemon juice.

Serve with warm pita and radish salad and garnish with bright accompaniments.
