Warm Fava Beans and Peas with Goat Cheese
- 2 cups shelled and skinned fava beans
- 2 cups shelled peas
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- 6 thin slices proscuitto or other cured ham
- 6 crottin de chevre
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Fine sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil.
Bake the crottin on a non-stick baking tray for 10 -12 minutes until soft and semi melted. Keep warm.
While the cheese is baking, heat a large non-stick sauté pan over high heat and drizzle in a little olive oil. Sauté the ham slices for 1 minute on each side until crispy and reserve on paper towels to remove any excess fat.
Cook the fava beans and the peas in the salted water until just tender and then drain.
On six warm plates scatter the fava and peas. Sprinkle over the spring onions and season with salt, pepper and olive oil. Place the cheese baked-side facing up on the salad. Break the ham slices into large pieces and place on the salad. Serve warm.
