Fava Beans with Tomato and Onion


Quantity Ingredients
4 1/2 pounds unshelled fava beans (about 2 1/4 cups shelled)
2 cups sliced, halved plum tomatoes (about 4)
1 cup vertically sliced sweet onion
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp extravirgin olive oil
1 tsp minced fresh garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Cooking spray
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp red wine vinegar
1/8 tsp salt


Preheat oven to 425°F.

Remove beans from pods; discard pods. Cook beans in boiling water for 1 minute. Remove beans with a slotted spoon. Plunge beans into ice water; drain. Remove tough outer skins from beans; discard skins. Set beans aside.

Combine beans, tomatoes, and next 6 ingredients (through black pepper) in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray, tossing well. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes, stirring once.

Combine sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vinegar, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a small bowl, stirring until sugar dissolves. Drizzle over bean mixture, tossing gently to coat.
