Fava beans are complicated

This plate of fava beans sautéed with onions, bacon, and some fresh lemon juice looks pretty good, but since I don’t really work with fava beans it was… complicated.

Specifically, I popped open the pods and took out the beans and started sautéing them…without taking the bean skins off.

I realized my mistake and then spent 10 minutes burning my finger tips while taking off the skins.

The flavour of the finished dish was pretty tasty, but a high fussiness factor :wink:
