Dinner tonight was fresh fava beans with Persian rice and tahdig. It was not bad considering this is the first time I’ve made either of those things. My tahdig skills are still lacking because we didn’t get enough of a rice crust at the bottom, but what we did get was delicious. Adding the leftover fresh herbs (rosemary and tarragon) and some chopped garlic really made the brown rice flavorful.
Shelling the fresh fava beans were a pain, but they were delicious. I should get some more from the middle eastern store up the street while they’re still in season and pretty cheap.
Eating the rice cooked with herbs and fresh beans made it really feel like spring despite it getting a bit chilly tonight.
