Fava Bean and Garlic Dip
Recipe type: Appetizers
Author: Jillian
  • 2 cups fava beans
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp kosher salt for water
  • 1/4 cup grape seed oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt for dip
  • 4 grinds of fresh ground pepper
  1. Prepare fava beans leaving out the step where you peel the second bitter skin after boiling. Strain the fava beans, and dump them in a large mouth mason jar. Add minced garlic and 1/4 cup grape seed oil. Use a hand blender and pulse until it becomes the consistency of a creamy dip. Place puree in a ramekin and drizzle grape seed oil over top. Eat with fresh crisp vegetable sticks, or corn tortilla chips, or spread on a crostini, and enjoy immensely. We did not have corn tortilla chips in our pantry, so I decided to make handmade corn tortilla chips, using corn tortillas I had in the refrigerator.
