1. I got fresh fava beans, which I've never cooked before. I shelled and washed them. Do I remember right that they also need to be peeled? (Or was that raw garbanzos?). Also, can they be sauteed from raw, or do they need to be steamed?
2. I got some rhubarb. I'm thinking of making a compote of it, to eat over Greek yogurt. I thought of using sugar and cinnamon. Would you suggest anything else? Also, would you thicken it with a little cornstarch?
3. Broccoli rabe -- sautee, steam, or can you eat it raw like broccoli florets?
