Garlicky Potato and Fava Bean Side Dish – Gluten and Dairy Free

Crispy potatoes with soft favas complete with exciting cloves of flavorful garlic. My mom and I were out in the garden and we started harvesting things. Among some of the things we harvested was potatoes and favas. We also harvested lettuce. In our garden, we have also grown 200 onions and 72 garlic bulbs. We decided to put these ingredients together into dinner and with the help from a recipe from cooking.nytimes we made this and a salad for dinner! It tasted amazing and super fresh! I think it would be very tasty with some fresh snap peas! Enjoy!


Serves: 4-6
Prep Time: 20 minutes


1 1/2 pounds Potatoes (We used yellow fingerlings)
5 tablespoons Olive oil
 1-2 pounds Fava beans
4 cloves Garlic, crushed with the flat of a knife
1 each Small onion, diced
To taste Salt and pepper
½ teaspoon Tarragon


Step 1:    Dice the potatoes into small pieces or slice them into rounds.
Step 2:    In a large saucepan, boil them until softened, but not fully cooked, about ten minutes. Drain.
Step 3:    While the potatoes are cooking, shell the first large pod off the fava beans.
Step 4:    Steam the beans in about an inch of water for about five minutes, or until fully cooked.
Step 5:    Remove them from the hot water and remove the next shell. There will be a small, green bean remaining.
Step 6:    In a large frying pan or an electric griddle, heat the oil on medium heat.
Step 7:    Throw in the garlic and onion, sauté until onions are translucent.
Step 8:    Add the prepared potatoes. Not letting them burn, stir only when necessary to get a beautiful brown on the potatoes.
Step 9:    Stir in the cooked favas, salt, pepper, and tarragon.
Step 10: When the favas are warmed through, serve and enjoy as a side dish or as main dish with a salad. Enjoy!
