Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup shucked fava beans
  • 1 Cup kale
  • 1/4 Cup shucked English peas
  • 2 -3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 1/2 Cup spring onions, sliced
  • 1/2 Cup fiddlehead ferns, cleaned
  • 1/4 Cup fresh chickpeas
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Pinch of chopped parsley

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat and set up an ice bath. Blanch the fava beans, kale, and peas one at a time until tender and shock in the ice bath. Drain. Shell the fava beans once cool.

Heat the olive oil and garlic in a sauté pan over medium heat and sauté for 1 minute. Add the fava beans, kale, peas, spring onions, fiddlehead ferns, and chickpeas, increase the heat to medium-high, and sauté for about 2-3 minutes. Swirl in the butter and add the parsley.

Vegetable Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Vegetable Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
