Green fava beans

Got inspired by the feast last night and this morning I made a delicious stew of green fava beans (I buy them frozen in Chinatown, usually with the skin still on each individual bean, but this time I saw peeled ones too); leeks, garlic, turnips, and the salted lemons that I made with Joelle and Marshall when they were here. I also used the dough that was left over to make pita and found that the flat cast iron griddle is perfect for the purpose--the pitas puffed up like little balloons and cooked very quickly. And, the zucchini flesh that had been removed when they were cored? I sauteed the flesh in a little olive oil and garlic. I also made a pureed broccoli soup, with ginger and nutmeg. Lovely watercress in the fridge for salad tomorrow.
