Sautéed Fava Greens with Garlic

Boasting a sweet flavor similar to pea shoots, fava greens are absolutely delicious sautéed with fragrant garlic.

Ingredients:
4 cups fava greens, washed and coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
3-5 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Gently warm the butter and olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-low heat. Soften garlic in warm oil for 2-3 minutes (do not allow garlic to brown).

2. Turn heat up to medium-high, and add fava greens, salt and pepper and sauté, stirring frequently for 3 minutes, or until the greens are wilted. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed and serve.
