Lemon Garlic Fava Beans & Mushrooms

Submitted by: BREW99


This is from PPK online and This is from PPK online and
Number of Servings: 4


    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 small red onion, cut into thin half moons
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon fresh chopped thyme
    8 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced in half
    2 tablespoons breadcrumbs (plain or seasoned)
    2 cups vegetable broth
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Juice and zest of 1/2 a lemon
    Lots of fresh black pepper
    3 cups cooked fava beans (or two 15 oz cans, rinsed and drained)

    Optional: Slivered green onions for garnish


Preheat a large pan over medium heat. Saute onion in oil with a pinch of salt for 5 to 7 minutes, until slightly browned. Add garlic and thyme, and saute one minute. Add mushrooms and cook to release moisture, about 5 minutes.

Add bread crumbs, toss to coat everything and toast crumbs for 3 to 5 minutes. Add veg broth, black pepper, salt, lemon zest and juice and fava beans. Bring to a boil. Let reduce and thicken, 7 minutes or so. Taste for salt and seasoning and serve, topped with green onions.
