fava bean ‘risotto’

  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Boil the beans in boiling salted water for a minute, then transfer them directly to the ice water bath.

  • Throw the beans out of their shells. Take half of a peeled bean and chop it using a knife. The final product should be about the size of a grain of rice.

  • Bring a small pot over medium heat and add two tablespoons of olive oil. Add the chopped shallots to the saucepan and cook until translucent (1-2 minutes). Add chopped beans and cook for another minute. Add vegetable broth and leave the mixture on a low heat. Let the liquid simmer a little (1-2 minutes), then add the butter, parsley and 1/4 cup of whole beans. Stir constantly to bring them together.

  • Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. The final product should resemble the consistency of a risotto.

For dandelion greens (if you can’t find dandelions, this can be any bitter green.):

  • In a skillet over high heat, pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil until hot. Once the oil is hot, add the clean dandelion greens and stir constantly until slightly wilted (1-2 minutes).

  • Season with salt and transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil

To paint:

  • Place the bean risotto in the center of the plate. Place the fish in the center of the beans, and surround the fish with the thawed vegetables.

  • Finish with a healthy drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and enjoy.
