Just a small post to present you this picture of a broad bean or fava bean, just before preparing it into a bean spread with lemon and pecorino cheese. Great on toast or a bruschetta as a starter or lunch.
I love the way nature found a way to protect the bean from cold and harshness. Can you see the fluffy interior of the pod? Amazing.
I'll publish the recipe for the spread later this week. I forgot to take a picture because I was too obsessed with eating it. Luckily, I have a sourdough starter bubbling up right now, I think the spread will be perfect on a fresh loaf of sourdough bread. So, I'll make a new batch this week!
