Herbed Fava Beans

This recipe comes from CSA members Christiane and Patrick at 28 cooks.

-1 1/2 pounds fava beans in shells, or 1 cup shelled
-2 tbsp olive oil
-2 tbsp red wine vinegar
-1 clove garlic, minced
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp fennel seed
-1/4 tsp dried thyme

Heat a pot of water over a stove until boiling. In the meantime, shell fava beans. When water is boiling, add fava beans and boil for 3 minutes, until they are bright green. Remove from water and toss into ice cold water until cool. Strain well and remove beans from their little skins (you'll be able to see this easily after they are cooked) In a jar, combine remaining ingredients and add strained beans.  Shake well and either serve immediately or store in the fridge.
