Fava Beans and Ramps with Fettuccine
Zucchini Fritters with Tomato Sauce
The organic fava beans were rescued from the grocery store as the produce guy was bagging them up to toss out -- apparently we were the first people to ask about them since they've been in the store. The outside of the fava beans were a little wrinkled to be sure, but the insides were pristine, as you can tell from the picture. As a bonus, he sold two giant bags to us for a substantial discount. So, produce score, yay! ;)
We also bought most of the local ramps they had and used a portion in the mix along with nutritional yeast, white wine, salt, pepper and the fava beans. Rounding out the plate was our daughter's favorite side dish: zucchini fritters with tomato sauce.
