Ingredients

1
pound
fresh fava beans, shelled (1 cup)
2
tablespoons
olive oil
4
cups
fresh corn kernels, cut from 4 ears of corn
1
small onion, finely diced
2
small garlic cloves, minced
1
teaspoon
kosher salt
1/2
red pepper, thinly sliced
1
scallion, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. Blanch the fava beans in a pot of lightly salted boiling water for 2 minutes and drain. Rinse the beans under cold water to stop the cooking. Peel off and discard the green skins; set aside the beans.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the corn, onion, garlic, and salt and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are slightly charred and golden, 6 to 7 minutes. Add the bell pepper and beans and cook an additional 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat, add the scallion, and toss well. Serve warm or at room temperature.
