Ingredients:500 gr. dried fava beans, abundant cold water, 2 potatoes, salt and pepper, wild chicory, Masturzo Extra-Virgin Olive Oil.
Let the fava beans soak overnight in plenty of cold water. Rinse them the day after and put them in a pan together with the diced potatoes and a bay leaf. Cover with sufficient cold water and bring to the boil, then simmer on a low flame for a couple of hours, until the beans and potatoes are soft. Add salt to taste and reduce to a thick mash, using an electric mixer.
In the meanwhile wash and clean the chicory and boil in plenty of salted water. Drain well and serve a portion over a layer of the fava bean mash. A drizzle of Masturzo Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, a sprinkling of freshly ground pepper and everyone can sit round the table to try this tasty and healthy dish, typical of Southern Italy.
