Fava Bean Puree Crostini
Garden of Eydie has a beautiful fava bean plant with lots of ready to harvest fava beans. There are so many ways to eat these nutty, delicious beans. I decided to make these super special, kind of nutty tasting beans the star of the show. Here is an elegant hors d’oeuvre you and your friends will swoon over! By the way, these beautiful tiny gems are not only delicious, they are loaded with nutrients and are a great source of soluble fiber, aiding digestion and lowering cholesterol levels. A twofer—delicious and healthy. That’s how we roll!
Preheat oven to 425℉
Place a teaspoon of fava bean puree on each crostini. Top with sliced cherry tomatoes and adorn with a cooked whole fava bean.
