Broad beans with mint (Faves A La Menta)
Place the olive oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the onions and bacon and sautee. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Add the wine and bring to a boil. Add 1 cup of water and return to a fast simmer. Continue cooking until the liquid is reduced by half. Add the remaining water and the Broad Beans and bring to a boil.
Lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the fava beans are tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Add the mint leaves and serve hot or at room temperature.
