Artichokes & Fava Beans

My Italian mother knows how healthy I like to eat.  So when I paid her a visit in NJ a few weeks ago, she prepared this amazing new dish for me.

Artichokes stuffed with Fava Beans.  It was delicious!

Super easy to make.

Just stuff as many Fava Beans into a large Artichoke as possible and place it into a pot of hot water.

She added a touch of olive oil and 21 Seasoning Salute from Trader Joe's. It has no sodium and she knows I like that.  However, you can season as you wish.

Let it cook for a good hour...and then let it sit in the hot pot for about 20 minutes.

Please post your photos if you decide to make this dish.  I'd love to see your version!

Happy cooking!
