Fava Beans!

For the next month or so we will be featuring local fava beans from The Monicas farm in Garyville, LA.  Fava beans are these beautiful bright green beans that have a slightly sweet and lemony taste.  You may have seen them at the local farmer’s markets; they resemble giant pea pods.  So you could get them from the market, shell them, boil them, blanche them, shell them AGAIN and then eat them OR you could come to Satsuma and get them in some of the various forms we have them :   pureed, in salads, with quinoa.  Just don’t get too addicted because they are only in season for a short time here!
