Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 spring onion, minced
  • 4 bacon slices, cut crosswise into 1/8-inch thickness
  • Fine sea salt and freshly ground white pepper
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups shucked fava beans

Directions

Place the olive oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the onions and bacon and cook until limp. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Add the wine and bring to a boil. Add 1 cup of water and return to a boil. Continue cooking until the liquid is reduced by half.
