Ingredients

  • For the waffles:
  • 150 g Cirio La Classica
  • 200 g boiled fava beans
  • 100 g of corn flour
  • Sunflower frying oil
  • Salt to taste
  • For the salad and the cream of yoghurt:
  • 900 g Green Beans
  • 20 strawberries
  • 450 g soy yoghurt
  • 200 g soy cream
  • 1 teaspoon rice syrup
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (at your discretion)
  • 20 stems of chives
  • Extra virgin olive oil to taste
  • Salt to taste

Preparation

Drain the green beans from their water and put them in a bowl; add oil, salt and, if you wish, apple cider vinegar. Then arrange them in bundles, and use strings of chives to tie them.

Preparation of the cream of yoghurt: 

  1. Place the soy yoghurt in the fridge for one night. Put it in a container with holes or a sieve, so as to let it drain (ideally you could use the fuscella for the ricotta)
  2. Once the yoghurt has drained, place it in a bowl, with the cream, the rice syrup, the extra virgin olive oil, salt and the finely chopped chives.
  3. Mix using a spoon,  ensuring that all the ingredients are amalgamated. Store in the fridge. 

Preparation of the waffels:

  1. Put the fava beans into a container, whisk them adding olive oil, salt and a dash of water. Add the Fioretto corn flour and sieved tomatoes.
  2. Knead until you obtain a hard, smooth mixture.
  3. Spread the dough using a rolling pin, and make disk shapes using a cup.
  4. In a pan, fry the beans and corn discs in sunflower oil.
  5. Dry them using some kitchen paper.

Serve this dish in a bowl: place the cream at the bottom, the green beans and the chopped strawberries on one side, and the waffles on the other side.
