It's fava bean season, and the Monica's have plenty. Favas are high in fiber, iron and protein, and low in both sodium and fat. Perhaps even better news, this early in the season the beans are young and tender, so double shelling isn't necessary. We love them cooked and tossed with Pecorino, mint, parsley, olive oil and hot pasta.

The Mid-City Branch Library (our neighbor in the American Can building) joins us at the market this Thursday to celebrate National Library Week. Learn about their Food For Fines program which allows people to pay outstanding library account balances including overdue fines, lost book and processing fees by donating food items to the New Orleans Public Library, which in turn donates the food to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans.
