Fava Bean Purée Crostinis
My favorite way to eat fava beans are to puree (or mash) them together with a little lemon, garlic, arugula, and a touch of Parmesan cheese. Add that mixture to some crostini, and you've got an instant party hit on your hands. You can even make the arugula and fava bean crostini mixture ahead of time, and then whip it out whenever you have guests visiting.
