I've been fascinated by Middle Eastern foods and flavors from a very young age. I love their spices and sauces made with tahini, a sort of butter made from sesame seeds that can turn any ordinary dish into extraordinary. I always take advantage of sales at the supermarket, and whenever fava beans go on sale, I make sure to stock up so I can make these light and crunchy bites. These delicate fava bean fritters are a take on falafel but much lighter because they’re not made with chickpeas. To save time, leave everything ready for the dough, and the sauce can also be made a day in advance.
