Yield: 6 servings
  • 1 lb fresh fava beans
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and quartered
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • 14.5 oz canned crushed tomatoes
  • 8 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 lb string beans, trimmed and cut into ½-inch pieces
  • ½ lb gluten-free pasta
  • ⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ⅓ cup chopped unsalted roasted pistachios
  1. Remove the fava beans from their pods. Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil. Add fava beans and boil for 1 minute. Drain and then rinse with cold water. Peel second skin off of fava beans. Set beans aside.
  2. Put onions and garlic in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large pot. Add the onions and garlic to the pot, season with salt and black pepper and cook over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Add in the cumin and coriander and cook, stirring frequently, until the onions begin to brown. Add the tomatoes and cook until the mixture is jammy, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Stir in the broth and bring to a boil. Add in the string beans and fava beans. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add in the pasta and cook until tender. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  5. Serve topped with yogurt and pistachios.
