Snap Peas, Fava Beans & Mozzarella.

Another successful trip to the Farmer's Market. I have to admit, it's nice to have someone around to try out all of my recipes - this one got rave reviews.

5 oz shelled snap peas
9 oz shelled fava beans
fresh mint leaves
grated Parmesan cheese
1 lemon
3 tbsp of olive oil
ciabatta bread
salt, to taste

Directions: Add peas, fava beans, mint and lemon juice to a food processor. Blend until the peas and beans are small bits, then add Parmesan and 1 tbsp of olive oil. Continue to blend until you have smooth texture (adding olive oil to achieve this) - the mix should be spreadable yet still grainy. To serve, spread on bread and tear off some fresh mozzarella to top. Garnish with fava beans.
