This is a lovely side dish and its also good with pasta. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil while you remove the fava beans from their pods. Meanwhile, roast the red peppers over a gas flame or under a broiler, turning until all sides are uniformly charred. Remove from the heat and place in a paper or plastic bag until cool enough to handle. Remove all the charred skin, rinse the peppers and pat dry. Slice into thin strips, then cut the strips into 1 - or 2-inch lengths. Blanch the fava beans for 30 seconds, no longer, drain, and transfer to a bowl of cold water. Slip the beans out of their thick skins, and place in a bowl. Heat the olive oil in a heavy-bottomed lidded skillet and gently saute the garlic until golden, about 2 minutes. Add the fava beans and red peppers and stir together over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Add the wine and the thyme, cover, and turn heat to low. Simmer 5 to 8 minutes (they are very good slightly crunchy and bright green; after theyve cooked 5 minutes their color dulls and they become quite soft). Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste, stir in the lemon juice, and serve. PLGOLD@IX.NETCOM.COM (PAT GOLD) REC.FOOD.RECIPES From rec.food.cooking archives.
