Rice Salad with Fava Beans and Pistachios

Rice Salad with Fava Beans and Pistachios


Not your ordinary side of rice. Two types means more textures to layer with crunchy nuts and tender beans.

Ingredients

  • 1 dried Iranian lime (optional)
  • 1 cup fresh shelled fava beans (from about 1 lb. pods) or frozen, thawed
  • ½ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • ½ cup unsalted, raw pistachios
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • ½ teaspoon Iranian lime powder or 1 finely grated lime zest

Ingredient info

  • Dried Iranian limes, also known as limu omani, are available at Middle Eastern markets and online.

Recipe Preparation

  • Cook wild rice in a medium pot of boiling salted water until tender and grains start to split, 35–40 minutes. Drain; let cool.

  • Meanwhile, combine basmati rice, lime, if using, and 1½ cups water in a medium saucepan, season with salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Cover; let sit until water is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Let cool; discard lime.

  • If using fresh fava beans, cook in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until tender, about 4 minutes. Drain; transfer to a bowl of ice water. Drain and peel. (If using frozen fava beans, cook 2 minutes; transfer to a bowl of ice water, then drain.)

  • Toss wild rice, basmati rice, dill, parsley, pistachios, oil, lemon zest and juice, lime powder, and fava beans in a large bowl; season with salt.

  • DO AHEAD: Fava beans can be cooked and peeled 2 days ahead; cover and chill. Wild and basmati rice can be cooked 2 days ahead; cover and chill.

This was the perfect side for Easter. It tasted fresh and was perfect for spring. The other major change I made was subbing a bag of frozen shelled edamame for the fava beans. I couldn't find fava beans where I shopped and didn't have the luxury of shopping around at this time.Very much recommend adding mint! And can add sugar snap peas and/or asparagus for additional green
