Fava Bean Saute with Marjoram and Feta

This recipe celebrates the spring fava bean harvest by using ingredients that enhance but do not mask the fresh, nutty flavor and buttery texture of the legume. Feta cheese adds a bright tanginess; both shallot and lemon zest contribute a pleasing zip; and marjoram's mellow, floral hints bring all the elements together.

Tasty, but worth the effort?

In the end, this was a delicious recipe, but it was TOO much work! Two pounds of fava beans (IF you can find them!) yielded about two cups of shelled beans - maybe. The shelling, then blanching, then sautéing, ugh. It took a LONG time to get this recipe done, and while it is really delicious, allow yourself enough time in the kitchen, AND, double and triple if you want seconds or you have lots of guests!
Pros: Healthy, taste
Cons: Complicated, Yield, Ingredients, Lengthy
