simmer. Add the 2 ts salt, cover & cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until the
beans are very soft. Add more water if necessary. Drain & place in a
processor with the 2 tb olive oil. Clean the broccoli rabe by peeling off
any thick skin covering the larger stems & cut into 2" pieces. Rinse the
greens well. Bring the water to a boil, add the greens & 1 tb salt, cover &
cook until the greens are soft but not mushy, 5 minutes. Drain. Warm the 3
tb olive oil in a skillet & slowly saute the garlic just enough until it is
golden brown & soft. Do not let it brown. Add the greens & swilr them
around in well flavoured oil. Serve on a platter, spooning the garlic
infused greens over the favas.
