I thought it was exquisite; my CSA had delivered the fava beans and peas, and my own garden was full of mint so I had to try this. It really did taste like spring and was simple to prepare. I added a poached chicken breast with tarragon and lemon to round it out. Unfortunately, my husband did not like the mint flavor. It is strong, and probably not "for" everyone.
Fava beans surely are peculiar, but so awesome. This dish is heavenly, the best, just like it is. Bravo Martha.
