This past weekend, I had a veggie friend over for dinner and made this salad as part of our dinner. Best to make it on a weekend as it is a little prep-intensive.
- 1 lb fava beans, shelled, blanched, and shelled again
- 1 can/jar white beans
- 1 small red bell pepper, diced
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 1small red onion, diced
- 2 carrots, diced
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Sautee onions and garlic in oil for 3 minutes, then add bell pepper and carrots and cook for another 5 minutes or until soft. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and cook for 25 minutes or until beans have absorbed most of the liquid. Strain and serve hot or toss with 1 tbsp olive oil and pepper and refrigerate for 1 hour to serve cold.
