Quick and easy fava bean crosini are the perfect dish to celebrate the coming of spring. The most time consuming part of this recipe is shelling the beans but once that has been accomplished, the dish takes only minutes to make. Fava beans are cooked in boiling salted water before being sauteed with garlic and a squeeze of lemon juice. You can smash the beans in the pan or for a smoother consistency, place them in a food processor. Spread the fava bean paste on slices of toasted bread and top with parmesan cheese- it's really that simple. Fava bean crostini makes for great party food, a delicious snack, or a simple lunch.
