From The Yellow Table blog: "My favorite way to enjoy favas and peas (besides the salad I wrote about last week) is in this lemony, mint-spiked purée. Once your peas and favas are peeled and blanched (this can be done a day ahead of time, FYI), just toss them into a food processor with mint, lemon, red pepper flakes, extra virgin olive oil, and some salt and pepper. Pulse a few times and you’ve got the most flavorful, brilliantly colored side dish imaginable. This is delicious slathered on toast or eaten as a dip with some crudités (radishes, carrots, peppers, etc.) but it is especially divine with seafood."
