Bean, Mint and Ricotta Crostino

I really suggest trying to find fresh fava beans because I think they make the difference. I also think maybe adding some diced red onions would add a nice bite to this mix and some added flavor and color.

Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 cups of beans (fava preferably)
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • french bread
  • ricotta
  • fresh mint
  • red wine vinegar
Instructions
  1. Heat broiler. While you do this boil ½ cup of salter water. Then put 2 cups of drained fava beans (I had to use Lima because I couldn’t find any fava at the local grocery store I was at.) in the skillet for about 5 minutes. Drain the beans and then add salt, pepper and oil and a tablespoon of red wine vinegar with ¼ cup of mint.
  2. Once finished, toast the bread. When the bread is finished toast the cheese on the bread and the bean mixture on top!
