La Cambusa

Macco di fava beans with wild fennel. This is the traditional Sicilian recipe: it is prepared with dried, cooked and blended beans until a creamy velvety is added to which wild fennel is added, an evergreen aromatic plant native to the Mediterranean areas, used as an indispensable ingredient in many Sicilian recipes ( > see sardine meatballs).

Note: among the many varieties of fava beans, Sicily boasts three declared Slow Food Presidia: la Fava cottoia di Modica, la Fava di Ustica e la Fava Larga di Leonforte.
