Sautéed Fava Greens


2 pounds fava greens
2 tablespoons olive oil
Fine sea salt


  1. Thoroughly rinse the greens and pick them over for damaged leaves and thick stems. Leave any flowers on stems .
  2. Heat a large saute and add the oil. Add fava greens and cook, stirring, until they’re wilted. The high heat and stirring help any liquid the leaves release evaporate quickly.
  3. Transfer the cooked fava greens to a serving platter or plates and sprinkle with salt to taste.
