Favas from Mike's Truck Garden (Fulton)

Melanie Wong | May 2, 200502:56 AM

My friend Annette, inspired by the 49¢/lb. fava beans at Mike's Truck Garden, made the first course shown below for each of us at Saturday's dinner. A leek was topped with a vinaigrette slurry of sundried tomatoes and capers. The favas were steamed and had lovely buttery texture, not a starchy one in the bunch. I loved having a pile of springy favas that someone else peeled and slaved over.
