Fava (Lima) Beans With Mushrooms

30 mins (prep 20, cooking 10)

Fava beans are delicious when prepared properly. Always remove the membrane from the beans - tedious but worth the effort. Frozen & canned still have the membrane on them. To remove the membrane on both the frozen and fresh immerse beans in boiling water for 5 - 1o minutes, the membrane will turn whitish, rinse under cold water and pop off the membrane. If you use canned beans the membrane can just be slipped off. Fresh, frozen or canned bean may be used. If using canned they require less final cooking time - just enough to heat them through and cook the mushrooms
