I think this is such a fabulous dish to celebrate Spring!! Fava bean (also called Broad beans) season is late spring and after the beans are ready to use this prepares so fast, you'll have more time to spend outside in the lengthening daylight. If you don't have access to fresh or frozen fava beans, you can substitute lima beans (not my favourite, but some like them) or edamame. This recipe is from Organic Style, 5/2005, I added a bit of garlic and garnished with a little mint. The prep time mostly is shelling the fava beans, the cooking time includes removing their outer skins.
