Slash prep with pre-packaged zoodles from your market (they’re becoming widely available!)
Frozen favas are another lifesaver if you can’t find fresh at the market. Just cook for 1-2 minutes in hot water and remove the outer skins. If you can't find favas feel free to substitute frozen peas instead!
