One of my favorite early signs of spring are the lovely pale green curves of fresh fava beans. It takes a good pound of shell-on fresh favas to serve one person so plan on buying a few pounds. You'll need to shell them, then blanch briefly before removing the pale outer skin. These are delicious with just a drizzle of good-quality olive oil and tossed with some fresh herbs and cheese. Favas can be tossed in with some scrambled eggs, piled onto toasted bread, puréed into a hummus, and so much more.
