The dressing: Place the anchovy fillets, garlic, egg yolk, lemon juice, mustard and parmesan cheese in a bowl with high sides and process with a hand blender until smooth. Add the oil in a thin stream until the sauce thickens. Round up the taste by adding crème fraîche.

Rinse and dry the salad leaves and tear on the serving dish. Fry the Ground Fava Beans in olive oil until golden. Remove the pan from the heat and add grated garlic and salt, and mix together. Drizzle the leaves with dressing and sprinkle the croutons and parmesan shavings on top.

Tip: Fava bean croutons are tasty also when sprinkled on top of soup or salads.
