Fava Bean Hummus

12 Apr

I love to spread hummus on my sandwiches, and I’m thrilled that Fairview Gardens grows beans we can use for hummus. Roll up this dip on lavash bread with vegetables for a delicious lunch.

Fava Hummus

1.5 pounds fava beans in pods
1/4 cup tahini
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper, to taste

1. Shell the fava beans. Bring a pot of water to boil. Put the beans in the boiling water for 10 minutes, and then plunge into ice water. Once the beans are cold you should be able to slip them out of their skins. Boil them longer if you like well cooked vegetables.

2. Blend all the ingredients, except the fava beans,  in a food processor.Then add the fava beans and blend some more.

3. Spread the fava bean dip on lavash bread, and sprinkle with vegetables. I like to add carrots, lettuce, radishes, and arugula.
