Fresh Fava Beans with Hibiscus Salt and Mint Recipe

  • Hibiscus Salt:
  • 1 teaspoon dried hibiscus flowers
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 large clove garlic, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 pound shelled fava beans, unpeeled
  • 1 tablespoon chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  1. Pulse hibiscus flowers in a spice grinder until finely ground. Pour into a small jar; add salt. Shake until blended.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Cook garlic slices until sizzling, about 30 seconds. Add fava beans and chicken stock; bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until fava bean skins begin to wrinkle, about 6 minutes. Uncover and cook for 1 minute more.
  3. Transfer fava beans to a serving dish. Discard garlic. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon oil over fava beans. Garnish with hibiscus salt and mint.
