Fava Beans And Peas
By Melissa's Corporate Chefs


2 cups Fava Beans
1 cup Frozen Peas
1 teaspoon Olive Oil
1 slice Salted Pork rind removed
2 clove Organic Garlic minced
1 teaspoon Fennel (Anise) chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste


Mince the salt pork.

In a heavy pot, heat the olive oil and add the salt pork. Sauté until just golden.

Add garlic and sauté for a few minutes at medium high.

Add the anise (fennel can be used) and stir to mix all.

Add the fava beans and mix well. Add salt, pepper and water; cover.

Turn down the heat and let steam cook until tender.

Add the peas; stir to mix well.

Cover, steam until the peas are done--about ten minutes.

Adjust salt and pepper to your taste and serve with pork chops or steak.
