Hannibal's Not Over For Dinner

We continue here our Lenten cooking series.  This time,  a very healthy dish that really hits the spot. I started with dry , split fava beans imported from Italy , slow cooked with a small boquet garni and garlic cloves. I then subsequently milled the cooked beans along with bit of Umbrian extra virgin olive oil , until they became of  velvety texture.

Serve warm with some crusty sourdough bread. Granish with savory and a slice of lime. A perfect dish , when old man winter refuses to hibernate.

Oh , before I forget. Hannibal was not over for dinner today and no Chianti wine was served . A chilled Sam Adams Apline Spring Seasonal brew instead hit the spot
