Here& an easy way for fava bean fans to enjoy the ingredient during its short peak season, March to May. At other times, shelled edamame are a worthy stand-in. Radishes make good, crunchy dippers for either version.
This fava bean hummus tastes just as good a day later—maybe better because the flavor will have had time to intensify. Eat it with bread, eat it with carrot sticks, or be like me and eat it off with your fingers.
