8 ounces baby Yukon gold or small new potatoes

8 small radishes, trimmed and halved lengthwise

10-ounce box frozen fava beans or baby lima beans, thawed
2/3 cups low sodium vegetable broth
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
1-1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon


In medium saucepan, combine potatoes and enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool, and cut into quarters.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, bring six cups lightly salted water to a boil. Add carrots and cook for two minutes. Add asparagus and snap peas, also cooking for two minutes. Add radishes and cook for one minute. Drain and rinse under cool water.

In a deep skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add scallions, fava beans, cooked potatoes and blanched vegetables, stirring to glaze with oil. Pour in broth and bring to a simmer. Stir in parsley, lemon juice, tarragon and salt and pepper.

Let stand a few minutes and serve warm.
