Fava beans are among my favorite spring ingredients, and I get so excited when I see them at a local farmers market. When they are in season, they are so flavorful that I like to prepare them in simple ways. Here is one of my quick and frequently-made fava bean recipes. I steam the shelled fava beans for a few minutes, peel them and toss them with extra virgin olive oil, grated Parmigiano Reggiano, and top with some Salt-Pickled Sansho Berries. The dish is amazing. If you don’t have sansho berries, you can simply finish with sansho powder (and adjust the seasoning by adding a little amount of sea salt).
