1 tbsp olive oil
1/3-1/2 large lemon (1/2 tbsp+ lemon juice)
1 small clove garlic
Several sprigs cilantro & Italian parsley in combination
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp paprika powder
1/4 tsp salt
Pinch brown sugar (optional; not in photo)
Bring plenty of water to boil, and blanch fava beans for 2-3 minutes.
While fava beans are still warm, add olive oil, and squeeze lemon.
Meanwhile, grate garlic, and finely chop cilantro and parsley.
When fava beans are cool, add garlic, cilantro, parsley, cumin powder, paprika, salt and brown sugar. Taste, and add more lemon juice as necessary.
- Cilantro and parsley can be in any proportion. If choosing one over the other, I would go with more cilantro.
- Lemon's edgy sourness softens while marinating and chilling in the fridge.
