Spring time is Fava Bean season. I think that fava beans are underused and underestimated. Personally, I find them to be delicious. I usually make my kuku in the traditional ways, either stove top or in the oven. However, this time, I chose to make my kuku in muffin pans because I wanted to make them picnic friendly for Sizdeh Bedar.
