Fava Beans with Pine Nuts and Bacon

Bacon adds a smoky element to the sweet, earthy taste of fresh fava beans, and toasted pine nuts contribute nutty flavor and crunch. Although this recipes calls for oregano, feel free to use basil, thyme, or dill instead.

Prep time: 0 min | Total time: 0 min | 4 Servings

Ingredients

1 slice

bacon (cut into 1/2-inch dice)

1 tsp

extra-virgin olive oil

1 clove

garlic (minced)

1 Tbsp

white wine (a variety you'd like to drink)

2 cups

shelled and peeled fresh fava beans (from about 4 pounds of pods)

1 tsp

chopped fresh oregano

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

2 Tbsp

toasted pine nuts

Directions

Place the bacon and olive oil in a medium-size skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the bacon is crisp. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute, taking care not to let it burn.

Add the white wine, fava beans, and oregano, and cook until the favas are heated through, about 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer the favas to a warm serving bowl and sprinkle with the pine nuts. Serve hot.
