Fava Bean and Artichoke Dip
Pairing fava (broad) beans with artichokes, lemon, and spices provides a tasty twist and results in a refreshing dip, perfect for dunking falafel or flatbread into!
Put the fava (broad) beans into a saucepan and cover with boiling water. Return to a simmer, cover, and cook for 2-4 minutes, or until tender.
Plunge the beans into cold water, then pop them out of their gray outer skins.
Put all the ingredients into a food processor, season with salt and pepper, and process until the desired consistency is achieved. Drizzle generously with olive oil and serve with lemon wedges, if using.
